Magnolia Ladybug Hugs and Kisses

Good morning everyone, hope you are well! Here I am with a Tilda card, I just got this stamp after months of wanting it!
I coloured her in Promarkers and Flexmarkers, then cut round her and matted her on red card. I then used Echo Park 'Yours Truly' papers from a set I got in the sale :-) I made a bigger panel and mounted this on red card, then covered the card and placed the panel on top of this paper. I made a border with the hearts paper mounted on pink cardstock then added my Tilda at a slant in the middle. I added the 'hugs and kisses' greeting and lastly some card candy :-)

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
Crafting for all Seasons: Many Layers
Crafty Creations Challenges: Anniversary
Midweek Magnolias: Anything Goes
Paper Crafting Journey: Colour it up
Pixie Dust Studio: Use three papers
Stamping for the Weekend: Bugs and Butterflies

Crafty Ribbons/Fiskars LED canvas

Good afternoon everyone, hope you are well. I am here to share a backlit canvas using my Fiskars tools in a rather unusual way. I took the canvas off from the frame and folded it in half to randomly punch across the front of the canvas. I kept the cuttings for later. I then stapled the canvas back onto the frame. Next I stapled muslin fabric across the front of the canvas. I then added Clermont Cotton Lace across the bottom of the canvas as a border. I then got out my flexmarkers and coloured the punched canvas pieces in three complimentary colours. I then asked tiny gems to the centre of each and glued them randomly like flowers across the muslin fabric.

Thank you for visiting and for all your lovely comments!
