New Magnolia Challenge Blog

Tilda and Friends ATC Challenges

If you enjoy making ATCs and love Magnolia stamps, this new challenge blog might interest you. I was very pleased to be included as a member of the design team. The first challenge ‘Time to Sparkle’ started yesterday, so do pop along to see the ideas and artwork that we’ve come up with, and enter the challenge if you feel inspired.

Magnolia ATC 'Sea Princess' by Maria Adams

I used scraps of torn printed paper to represent sky, sea and sand for the background, then added some splatter dots at the sides with a rubber stamp. Mermaid Tilda was coloured with Prisma pencils, blended with Sansodor and paper stumps. I added Stickles glitter glue ‘Diamond’ to her wings, tail and the dots decorating her top. After cutting her out and sticking her to the background, I embellished with a die-cut crown, sparkly gems, micro beads, sequins and a glittered starfish charm. I finished by adding the words ‘Sea Princess’ printed in a Dymo font.
