Well I suppose with Valentine's day approaching it is only fitting that our challenge this week at Magnolia down Under is 'Love is all around us"..there are so many variations to this theme so I am excited to see the projects that will be entered this week.
I decided to create a little scene for my card and so I masked a few images and this is what I ended up with:
This is one of my favourite Tilda's and probably one of the reasons I started uses Magnolia images again. For some silly reason though I never actually acquired her till last year and it has then taken me this long to ink her up...hangs head in shame! I love that Edwin is looking all love sick here obviously catching all her kisses!
With such a large scene I had to go a bigger card base than normal and even then there was still not enough room to embellish it without taking away from the scene so I decided simple was best. Could also have something to do with the the fact that I am really struggling embellishing my cards lately. I try but I end up taking it all off as I always look back at it and think it looks like they have decided to vomit over my card!!! So I would love to know how you all get those beautiful embellishments on your cards....do you have a starting point and then keep adding around it? How do you know when there is just enough or in some cases not enough, as in the card looking unbalanced?
Now I know I say this each week but you really must be sure to pop over to the main Magnolia Down Under blog and check out our inspiration for you. Each week my fellow teamies manage to amaze me with their gorgeous creations.
So that's it for from me today...Thank you for taking the time to stop by I really appreciate it.
Until next time
