Swirly Swirls

Good morning everyone. It is Sunday already but it is a long weekend here in Melbourne Australia so we have an extra day. Woo hoo. I have a girlfriend coming over tonight to make some cards. We will probably spend most of the time stamping and colouring but I do need to get some of my DT stuff done. LOL.

This week at Magnolia Down Under Challenges our challenge is 'Swirly Swirls'. I couldn't resist to use Bubble Tilda. I have been dying to use her ever since I got her and she coloured beautifully. I put dots around her with my copic markers but I have seen people do the watercolour effect with their copics - if you know how to do it please let me know as I desperately want to do it LOL. I used my Slice machine to cut a swirl and also used my fancy tags die from Spellbinders for the sentiment - can you notice what is wrong with it. Hahaha. I had to laugh that they got their grammar wrong on a stamp. No matter. Lots of Glimmermist and some sewing and here is my card. Hope you enjoy your Sunday.

Products: Magnolia stamp and DP; SU card; Bazzill card; Nesties; Glimmermist; Cherry Blossoms from I am Roses; SU oval punch; Making Memories Slice and DC3.

OMGOSH Tracey, you card is just so beautiful!! I like how you did the backround around Tilda, and those magnolia papers..... OH MY so super cute!!

Sammi said...

oooh. this so sensational.. love the colours and the swirls! Those dots look great! I think people either use a plastic palette + blender or they fill a water pen up with colourless blender and pick up the colours from a palette! I've been meaning to try the latter!
hehe.. perhaps you can have something written inside the card that follows on... ie. your special .. day? lol!
