Just Magnolia #17

This week on the Just Magnolia challenge blog is a fab sketch to work from by Martine.

The intial element I wanted to use for this card was the lace - it fell out of my ribbon box (well, one of them!) last night so I just had to find some way to incorporate it into Martine's sketch - I hope she feels it constitutes for the bottom panel!

I felt the only colour combo I could do with this lace was monotone - but due to me not having any of the grey Promarkers yet I had to pick a colour too! I spent ages matching up Promarkers with a selection of coloured card I fancied using!

Tilda's dress was coloured with a selection of the paler skin tones, highlighted with Gold and then blended with Satin - I'm still in the Promarker's school of 'keep colouring till it looks ok'!


  1. Oooh Carol this is so pretty - I love the lace it gives it an extra touch of class :D

    Hope you have been enjoying our weather,
