Charisma cardz #16 & Just Magnolia Week 2 Pink & Green


I have just bought this Tilda stamp and obviously wanted to use it straight away. When I looked into the paper drawer for something pink and/or green, I found this paper from a magazine which matched both the designated colours from Just Magnolia and Tilda's tights! How lucky is that?
The sketch is from Charisma Cards and worked well with this image from Magnolia.
The shapes are Nesties... I put the scallop for the sentiment through twice. It started as a square, then I moved the card up a little to fit in with the scallops and then ran it through again to chop off a little more and make a rectangle which would fit the sentiment.
I didn't have quite enough of the green card for a complete backing after I had cut out the circle, so I made 2 rectangles instead. Waste not want not!

  2. Gorgeous Chrissie, I love how you've cut tilda out and have her sitting on a nestie - very clever and very effective, like one of those 70's swing seats.

    Love this one
