 Hiya Everyone :D
Its a lovely bright day here today in the UK. Lets hope it stays a while hey!!
Today to share is a card I made with some of the new Magnolia 'Once Upon A Time Collection' for a special little lady.
I really enjoyed making up this little scene as Princess and the Pea was one of my favourite books when I was younger.
Here she is in her 4 poster bed with lush curtains all around.

All Watercoloured with Distress Inks
Papers are all Magnolia

Flowers are all a mixture from my stash. The beautiful Orange Roses and Green flowers were sent to me from my sweet friend Camilla

Dies used were DooHickeys Feathers, Vintage Box Lacing Coffee and Tilda's Tag

Sweet Pea Tilda

Hiya I hope you are all OK :D ♥ 
It's Re-Cylcle time at MDUC this week.
For my Recycling I used a Recycled Paper Bag and Cola Cans...or in this particular case it was a Jack Daniels and Coke Can .... You can find my earlier Tutorial from a few years ago....HERE
I then coloured them using Alcohol Inks( Yes more alcohol!!!). I tried to colour the feathers as close to Peacock colours as I could.
 I was actually surprised how well the Doohickeys cut through the metal.
For the Butterflies I used Spellbinders

Tilda was Sweet Pea Tilda

Papers were also Magnolia
Turquoise Rose Ornament....so LOVING these,,,,also from the new Collection.
Also pop over to see who the new DT are at MDUC....you WONT be disappointed Im sure :D
We couldnt just have two!!! When we saw who had entered......We had to have 4!!!!!
Well done ladies

Gorgeous Clown Tilda

Hi There :D
I hope you are all having a great week so far?
♥ ♥ ♥
Well I think Ive found my favourite from this new collection. Im loving Clown Tilda..she has attitude..
Its not until they are painted up they come alive and I will probably love them all in the end...but for now I love this one
Can you see the tiny charm at the top. I Love to stamp....Love this :D
Thankyou Camilla ♥ ♥ ♥ xx

Ive painted her with DI's Reinkers.
Ive used Ivory Frantage and Fragments on the outer edge.
Ive added my own made clay embellishments.
I was looking in one of the cheapy shops the other day that sells allsorts and found some Airdry clay which was half the price of the one Id been using and you got double the amount.. Although it is heavier and not as flexible as the Martha Stewart it will do..

The VIP and the tags at the top are from my ever growing STASH!!
Dies are DooHickey Feathers and Tilda's Lace
♥ ♥ ♥
Ive put this card along with my latest ones in my Etsy shop HERE
♥ ♥ ♥ 
Have a great week
