Ying's Choice-Auntum Vintage- Guest Designer Magnolia Down Under Challenge Blog


Hi gang!

Well this is my final week at GDT with the awesome Magnolia Down Under Challenge Blog and the final challenge for me was Ying's choice and she picked 'Autumn Vintage'.. such  cool challenge!

Fall button
I am also entering this card in;
 Midweek Magnolias - lots of lovely layers
So for this card I used two different colour basic card stocks from Kaisercraft- Toffee for the actual body of the card, and then for the first layer Spiced Pumpkin. There is also a Fern thrown in there at the bottom for the grass. The DP are from Magnolia, the 'Turning leaves' collection in Vintage corn, to tie in with the theme this week. I used Tilda with Corn for the main image. She is very cute and rustic looking in her dress and tank top.

I coloured Tilda with Copics, here is my combo:

Skin-E50, 51, 53, 93
Hair- E50, YR21, E33, E55, E35
Dress- YR00, 02, 15, 04, 07, 68
Tank- YG03, 06
Corn- Y38 and Sakura Gelly Rolls green- this has glitter particles and twinkles.
Boots- E50, 43, 33, 35

I used the following dies- Lifestyle crafts for the main body of the card, Magnolia Doo Hickeys in flat, View finder, LLLC grass and heart fence. I used Spiced Pumpkin, Toffee and Fern for these to keep the colour combo the Autumn colour.

For embellies I used Split Pea coloured Rhinestones from Kaisercraft, Copper half pearls also from Kaisercraft. I used flowers from Kaisercraft, Berries from WOC, and some ghost leaves also from WOC. Behind the main image you can see some gold glitter mesh ribbon from my Christmas stash. I also added some tea coloured lace from my stash to the bottom of the card. On top of this was some Bright orange ribbon from Kaisercraft. This matched lovely with the Magnolia DP with the corn on it. I then added some Rhinestones to the top of the card in Split pea again and also to some of the ghost leaves. I finished off by adding a charm in the shape of a maple leaf.

I hope you have enjoyed my month at GDT!
