Have You Caught the Magnolia Bug??

Have you caught the Magnolia bug yet??  I might have.

Just happened to be in a LSS and a "Tilda" '60's stamp flew into my basket......  Only have one - this week!  There are advantages / disadvantages to on-line shopping.

These stamps are just so darn cute!  Copics, watercolours, markers, chalks, etc., all can be used to make them come alive.  Don't I sound like I just made a great discovery that the rest of the world doesn't know about yet??  lol   I've been looking at the cards made with these little beauties, and I'm hooked!!!

Here's one of many "trials" that I put together.  This is for a friend for her Birthday, we are taking her out to lunch tomorrow.  I hope she likes it - her cards always have that "wow" factor.

I turned it into an "80"'s Tilda by adding glitter to the hair ribbons, the hem of her skirt and the centre of the flowers.
Lots of fun coloring -- mostly with watercolors as I don't have many copics (yet).  I popped her out to be sitting on the vertical bars and the musical note brads were a last minute add-on, which I think I will keep.

Thanks for dropping by, hope you like it.  Remember, stamp up a storm, ink up a wish and send it on to someone to brighten their day.

The only treatment for this bug is to stamp, color, shre and send. Buy new ones as necessary and repeat. LOL
