Just Magnolia Challenge 5

the Just_Magnolia challenge this week is in the form of a sketch. You can rotate the sketch and resize the elements, as long as you follow the original sketch so your entry qualifies for the prize draw. The winner will be chosen by Random Generator next week so to be in the running all you need to do is ensure you have at least one Magnolia image on your card and link your card (not your blog) in Mr Linky and have your card posted by 10 pm UK time on the 21st May. I have been having so much fun colouring in my magnolia images and I thought the sketch looked great, so I just had to participate.
A square white card was used as the base card. Bazzil Dotted Swiss used as the background, patterned paper was layered on Bazzil (Forget Me Not). patterned paper squares & Bazzil were cut using spellbinders through the Cuttlebug. Magnolia Tilda image was coloured in using watercolour pencils & highlighted with chalks & kindy glitz, then layered on Bazzil Forget Me Not. All elements were attached with mouting dots. Corner embellishment was made by layering paper, organza & paper flowers attached with green brad. Corners were highlighted with Green Brads and final touch of rub-on sentiment added on the side.
I was determined to follow the sketch as faithfully as I could. The only alteration I made was to use one big flower embellishment on the top corner, rather than 3 - I thought it looked a bit crowded with the three flowers there.
I am very pleased with the way this card came together - I will most probably use this layout again.
Supplies used: Background is Bazzil Dotted Swiss, Grape Jelly??, Bazzil Forget Me Not??, Patterned paper, square white card. All of the cardstock & patterned papers (including square white card) were from Blue_Edge_Crafts
