Tilda Santa's Little Helper


I saw there is a red-white challenge over at Indonesia magnolia lovers and decided to give it a try. I made red-white Christmas card. I'm saying again, red is not my colour, it's difficult to colour with distress markers and it's just too red!

 I used one of the old Maggies from my collection, called Tilda Santa's Little Helper from So Jolly Collection, which was released in 2009. 

For this project I used:
  • colors: TH distress ink markers and distress ink pads
  • ink: archival black
  • watercolor paper: Langton HP 300g
  • design papers: First edition
  • stamps: Tilda Santa's Little Helper (So Jolly coll., 2009), Sweet snowflakes (Sweet Christmas Dreams coll.), A Joyful Christmas sentiment (Winter Wonderland coll., 2013)
  • dies: Magnolia, Tim Holtz, Cherry Lynn
  • flowers from I am roses
  • stickles glue
  • snowtex
  • buttons
  • white paper doily
  • white lace
  • frantage (shabby white).

I’m entering this card into the following challenges:
  1. Indonesia Magnolia lovers #3: Red & White
  2. Magnolia mania: Christmas in summer
  3. Papertake weekly challenge: To die for
Hugs, t.
