Magnolia Down Under Challenge - Trick or Treat.....



Good morning peeps - hope you are enjoying your weekend so far, even if it is a bit dreary today!

I had great fun making this card in the week for the Magnolia Down Under Challenge..... this week's theme is Trick or Treat and I certainly had to get my thinking cap on! You see I only have one Autumn/Halloween Magnolia stamp to use and already inked it up just a couple of weeks back here..... and I really don't like using the same image twice in quick succession. So I decided I was just going to have to pimp another Tilda for this challenge and I actually had great fun in doing so! In fact that led me to thinking what a great idea for a challenge that would be..... pimp your Tilda or Edwin so that they end up working in a completely different way!

I took a sweet Tilda from the Butterfly release and cut off her wings...... ouch! Sorry Miss T but it just had to be done, lol! Anyhow, I think she looks just fine in her altered bat costume instead and now my card fits the brief in question, YAY!!

The papers I've used are from Basic Grey's Eerie range, these really are fabby! My flowers are Prima and the goo border was created with a MS border punch. I coloured my images with Poly and Koh pencils and added some stickles to the kitty's wings.

Now I'm off to clean the bathroom..... yippee, I sure know how to live it up heh?! Catch you later ;o)

TTFN and TFL, hugs Tara xx
