I am ADDICTED



to Magnolia stamps! I am lucky that there are so many nice stampers willing to share as I don't own any of the stamps but am able to play with the many images sent to me. Thanks ladies! I recently signed up to the Yahoo! group for Magnolia and am awed and somewhat intimitdated by the wonderful artistic ability of its members. Each month there is a theme for the front page card and one of the submissions is selected randomly and posted on the site. I decided to give it a try for March, which theme was BRIGHT. I gave in to my biggest fault and procrastinated too much to get in posted in time for consideration; however, I don't think anyone could say that it doesn't qualify for not being bright enough, lol.

Butterfly Tilda is having flitting around yet another new style of card, a tri-shutter. The papers are from a super portfolio I found on special at the local discount store (tons of paper & embellishments for $3). She has been colored with copics; if anyone is interested in which, I can start adding them to the page, let me know. There are some epoxy stickers and liquid applique for shine. Another copic quick tip, paper is so important. I am not sure which I like since all my images have been donated, but I do see a huge difference between them. Some of the papers let the ink bleed a lot and it is difficult to remove even with the blender. I have purchased some paper (need to check brand) and want to get some from GKDesigns; I will let you know my thoughts on both as I use them.

Well, have a super Thursday! Weekend is creeping up, yeah! Thanks for stopping by! See you tomorrow.

  3. Very bright and very cute. I love your coloring. I was on vacation when you were looking for some images. If you still want some more let me know and I will send you some. I hope I have some new ones in the mail today. The GK paper is the best I have tried so far.
