Just Magnolia Challenge #13

Hello Everyone,

I hope you all are feeling rested and having a great weekend! After a day of working and washing clothes, I still had a enough energy left to make a card for Just Magnolia's weekly challenge.

This weeks Just Magnolia challenge is to make a card based on a sketch designed by the talented Mina. Thanks for the inspiration Mina!

I drew in a small water puddle for Tilda, I guess I felt a little whimsical or something! *lol* Tilda is colored in with Copic Markers and the sentiment is by TAC. The DP is by PTI and the card stocks are by Bazzill and Neenah Solar White. Due to the fact that Tilda was larger than my largest oval die, I tried this awesome technique that I discovered on Rach's blog. Rach calls this technique the "Out Of The Frame ". This method eliminates cutting out your image and re-matting it. I find that the "Out of the frame" method really saves a lot of time and I like the results! To embellish my card, I used flowers, glitter,half pearls and liquid glass for the rain drops and water puddle.

Enjoy what is left of your weekend and thank you all so much for stopping by!

This is a really, really awesome card! So much thought was put into it by adding the puddle and turning the leaf into a 3-D umbrella. Love the stitching.

What a great idea to not cut out of the image and have it extend beyond the oval! I have become accustomed to cutting all my images. . .LOL! It's like a routine!

Love that Tilda image and wow, what awesome coloring! That added flower is so pretty!
