Two Challenges!

I made this card for two different challenges for this week. One is for Taylored Expressions TESC116 and the other is for the magnolia down under challenge. The magnolia challenge was to just use a magnolia stamp and flowers. Very easy challenge right! They have some cool cards on their website it is at

I used rose red stampin up cardstock designer papers from My Minds Eye. I also used my cool mini roses that I sprayed with the Iridescent Memories Mist. I love this mist. It just adds a special look to the flowers I think. I dont think you can see it really good in this picture but in real life it looks great! I also sprayed it on the rose red flower shape behind the magnolia to tone it down a little. I got out my airbrush kit and sprayed some blue around the cream circle behind tilda also. I hadnt played with my airbrush kit in so long I forgot how to put it together. But luckily the color copic marker I used I had overfilled last weekend so it was really wet. For Tilda, I colored her alot like last weeks Tilda only a little darker pinks. Then I put some of the shimmer white smooch on her again and some glitter while it was still wet. I added some red stickles to her crown and around the rose red scalloped circle. Actually, I think the nesties I used with the rose red is considered a flower. I got these shapes awhile ago to make flowers so this was a 1st for it also.

For the sentiment, I used Stem Sayings from stampin up (which is going to retire next month) and cut it out by hand. I thought it went nice on this card.
Well, off to other things for today!
Happy Stamping!
