Just Magnolia and hAnglar & sTanglar challenge DT - Buttons, Bows and Bling







Woohoo! Are you all getting ready to watch the Royal Wedding?? Not sure how much I'll actually get to watch as I should think the kids will get bored but I'm definitely tuning in!! Of course, it's not just Royal Wedding day today, it is also time for another challenge at Just Magnolia and hAnglar & sTanglar and this week we'd like you to use buttons, bows and bling. You can use any or all of them. I've had the idea for this easel card floating around in my head since I got this "Beautiful Tilda" and finally sat down to create it last weekend. I drew the tiered butterfly shape myself for the top part of the easel card and it is mounted onto an acetate oval so that it looks like it is holding up itself!



I've coloured Tilda with copics and added lots of stickles to her wings and dress. I added a tuft of grass using a Whiff of Joy die and a Martha Stewart butterfly so that Tilda is sitting amongst the flowers in the garden.


The first butterfly is covered with lilac butterfly paper from Magnolia and I added a butterfly cut with a doohickey die and covered it in stickles. The edges of all the butterflies have been painted with picket fence crackle paint and inked with walnut stain distress ink - oh and stickled too LOL. The gems are by Hero Arts.


The second butterfly is covered with the pink butterfly paper from Magnolia and I added a tulle bow and a single pearl to this one. The smallest butterfly is topped with a butterfly from the corner punch of the Martha Stewart PATP set.

Tilda's garden was created with oval nesties and I added a tag with sentiment which I think is Whiff of Joy. I added a doohickey swirl and lots of doohickey rose leaves. The ribbon is from Really Reasonable Ribbons and the roses are from Wild Orchid Crafts. The rest of the flowers are from my stash.

Hope you like it and I've inspired you to join us this week at Just Magnolia and hAnglar & sTanglar! Pop over to the challenge blog to see the rest of the team's stunning creations! Thanks for looking! x
