A new obsession....

My lovely friend Kristy recently became a DT member for a brand new challenge blog called Magnolia Down Under Challenges. I've long been a fan of Magnolia stamps, but until now I haven't gotten any...but they're on their way :) Kristy was kind enough to send me a few stamped images, so that I could play until my stamps get here and one of them was this gorgeous Sitting Tilda (yes, she's one of those that I ordered!).
So, the Down Under challenge for this week had a few limitations....it had to have red, it had to use Tilda (not Edwin) and it had to have an Autumn theme. This is the card that I came up with:

Supplies:
Paper: More Mustard, Really Rust, Elegant Eggplant & Very Vanilla
Ink: Elegant Eggplant, More Mustard, Really Rust, Old Olive
Markers: Ruby Red, More Mustard, So Saffron, Apricot Appeal, Not Quite Navy & E00 Copic Marker
Stamps: Sitting Tilda (Magnolia), Simple Delights (SU!) & Leaf Stamps (Birch)
Other: More Mustard ribbon & Brads, Really Rust buttons, hemp twine, Large Oval punch, Designer Label punch


I had a lot of fun colouring this Tilda image and I can't wait to get my own stamps! I'll be playing along with these challenges every week...'cause they're just so much fun :)

If you've got some Tilda stamps & want to play along, you have until Saturday to get your entry in!

Hope you're all having a fantastic Wednesday,
Kristie

Kristie,

This is so cute! I love what you have done with the leaf stamps, I went looking for some autumn paper or leaf punches and couldn't find any.
