Be the Change

The challenge on Magnolia vs Stampavie is to create something other than a card. I used one of my favorite frames from that quality shop for all crafters....the $ store. My DH needs a gift for one of his colleagues so this is my first attempt. My only fear is that maybe it is too young. Anyhow, this is what I made today.

Of course I used a Magnolia stamp, actually two of them. I colored using Prisma colored Markers and pencils. I am still learning with these markers....I haven`t figured out how to fade into another color like you can with the crayons. Again, I have the coat colored purple in memory of my favorite piece of clothing I have ever loved. I used stickles on the buttons for some glitz.

The quote is an inkadinkado stamp and I really love this quote from Ghandi. I used the rectangular nestibility and used gold ink on the edges. You can also see some of the stickles I added to the BG paper from Basic Grey.

I used the SU stamp set called Feathered Hope for these sweet birds. I love this stamp set which I have borrowed from my Demo. I placed them on the ribbon that went around the panel. I made the flower by cutting out 3 sizes of flowers on the Cricut and then stamped with versamark and used Perfect Pearls on the image. I them used a white pen to doodle on the flowers. They look lovely....bit of blue, purple and even some green on nearly navy paper. I used a glass flower from....you know where....yes you are right....the $store.

I have another page of my Yorkie Mini Album done so maybe I`ll post again tonight...who knows what my family has planned for me. I would love to say they want me to relax in front of the fire but I don`t think that will happen.

Talk soon. Hugs
