Anything but a card - Midweek Magnolia DT

Morning all
It's Midweek Magnolia time again, yippee!
This fortnight we are making
'Anything but a card!'
So to be in with a chance of being in our Top 3 or winning that fabulous mystery prize from the one and only Magnolia, Sweden, just ensure that your Magnolia creations are not backlinked or entered into more than five challenges including ours!
For my 'non card' project, I decorated a miniature watering can. Placing decorative pins in the holes in the spout, a range of flowers in the larger opening and a spellbinders leaf with white acrylic paint.

Magnolia mini Tilda and bench (coloured with DI's, shabby white frantage around image and pink stickles around edge)
Spellbinders circle and lacey circle used to frame the image, the tag tied up with thin pink ribbon and scrap of lace

Thanks for visiting my blog today!
Enjoy the rest of your week and I'll be back on Sunday to show you what I've made for Simply Magnolia and LHOSM!

Fun in the sun for Deep Ocean Challenges

Hi everyone,
tonight sees the start of another fab challenge over at
Deep Ocean......
Summer Fun!
Although it's not sunny at the moment in the UK, it's very overcast and miserable, and I can't wait for the sun to reappear!! It's just typical that as soon as the kids finish school for the summer that the weather goes downhill!
Anywho.....I'm hoping that my sun inspired card makes the sun come back out!

Magnolia Tilda on the beach (coloured using DI's, shabby white frantage and pearl maker pen added)
SU and Magnolia postage stamps
SU sentiment and linen thread
Maja papers
We are sponsored this fortnight by our own dear Jennifer
and the prize is a surprise!

Midweek Magnolia DT - Embossing

Morning everyone!
I'm back with another card to show you, today sees the start of our next fabulous challenge for you over at
Midweek Magnolias......
and this fortnight we would like to see your
Whether you prefer heat embossing or dry embossing, I'm sure you are like me and can't make anything without some sort of embossing!
To be in with a chance of winning that awesome Magnolia prize, just make sure you don't enter more than five challenges including ours!
I used an embossing folder called 'In bloom' on the base card criss cross halves and then rubbed TH DI scattered straw over random parts of the embossed pattern. Lace from my stash was added to the criss cross edges. Magnolia DooHickeys: swirl and butterfly were added detail. 


The inner tag features an LOTV sentiment, SU small flower stamp around the edges and the Magnolia DooHickey butterfly as already mentioned (with plenty of Frantage!)

Magnolia Golden Week Tilda (coloured with DI's, surrounded by liquid pearl dots, shabby white frontage, black soot DI and faux stitching)
Spellbinders labels sixteen with white pen faux stitching under the image.
Thanks for popping over to my blog today!
