My very first Magnolia Down Under Challenge!

My very first Magnolia Down Under Challenge! Many many special thanks must go to Kristie who has very kindly provided me with some stamped images so that I may participate in the challenge. I can see myself getting addicted to these cute stamps.

This week, the challenge is sepia. I have always been fascinated by sepia photos and when my first digital camera had a setting for sepia, I started to use it a lot. I hope my card gives you the same nostalgic feeling that I get when sepia is mentioned.



Cardstock: Chocolate Chip, Close to Cocoa, SU DSP (I think it is So Saffron), Watercolour paper, Very Vanilla

Ink: Chocolate Chip, Close to Cocoa, Creamy Caramel, Barely Banana

Stamps: SU Reason to Smile, Magnolia Tilda with Tulips

Tilda was coloured with SU markers directly in some parts, and using an Aqua Painter in others. I stamped the sentiment with Chocolate Chip, then cut it and sponged each piece with Close to Cocoa, Tilda has been lightly sponged with CTC as well.



  1. It’s just a great card…. stunning, really it is! I like how you’ve seperated the words and stuck them around the card. Until I come up with a New Post could you please slow down? I’m trying very hard to keep up with you!!!(believe ot or not Net, I’m not as good as you think I am)


  2. This is lovely Annette. I love how you’ve laid out the sentiment. Be warned though, Magnolia stamps are highly addictive! Thanks for playing this week.


  3. Fantastic job with your first entry for MDUC. This is one of my favourite Tildas at the moment and you’ve coloured her perfectly for this theme.
    Hope to see you enter a lot more often.


  4. This looks fantastic Annette! You did a great job with the colouring….I don’t know what you were so worried about!!!!
    You’ve definitely evoked that *sepia* feeling with your card 🙂 Now that you have some images I hope you keep playing in the challenges!


I would love to hear what you think of my blog. Thank you for your comments.
