A Tilda Scene

Our current challenge on the Magnolia Stamp Lovers blog is to create a scene using at least one Magnolia image. For my scene, I actually used three different Magnolia stamps and a process called masking which you may or may not be familiar with. I stamped my first image, Honey Tilda,


twice once on my neenah cardstock and once on a post it note. I then cut the image on the post it note out and stuck it directly on top of the image stamped on the cardstock. Then, I stamped my next image, Spring Fence, twice also. The first time I stamped it do that it was positioned so that Honey Tilda was sitting on the fence. I then stamped the fence on the posit note, cut it out, and placed it on top of the first stamped image. Now for my final image. I used a Magnolia flower image and stamped that on both sides of the fence. I then removed the masks and my scene was created! I colored the images in with my copic markers. I used paper from the Basic Grey Origins pack for my background paper. I made some paper flowers using the new Sizzix 3D flower die. You can create your own flowers out of papers that match your project so that you always have a flower that is just the right size. I made one of the larger flowers and two of the smaller ones. I put some branches cut with the Martha Stewart branch punch behind them. I used my just rite small alphabet to create the sentiment.
