Spring at Time for Magnolia challenge GDT

A few weeks back I won a guest designer spot for Time for Magnolia challenge. I was so excited, because I really like their challenges and they have such great prizes. 
Our theme for this week’s challenge is SPRING is in the AIR!
What can be easier than that, right?
I made an Easter/Spring gift bag with three lovely stamps. I can’t stop masking lately and I’m constantly looking for new masking combinations. 🙂


For this gift bag I used:
  • colors: TH distress ink markers and distress ink pads
  • ink: archival black
  • watercolor paper: Langton HP 300g
  • design papers: Maja design
  • stamp: Tilda with Egg & Chicken, Happy Easter background, Chicken Wire (Little Easter Collection, 2013)
  • die: DooHickey tilda lace, TH – butterflight, Marianne – decorative elegance
  • blue organza ribbon
  • white lace
  • flowers from I am roses, woc
  • metal bird’s cage
  • natural colour cord
  • stickles glue (stardust).

I’m entering this card into the following challenges:

  1. Live and love crafts (TOP 3): Earthy Easter
  2. Midweek Magnolias: Flourishes
  3. Totally Tilda Challenge blog (TOP 3): Easter
  4. Magnolia Mania: Kraft cardstock

    Beautiful gift bag, Tamara. Where do you find the time? I wish I were retired so I could spend all day in my craft room. I love the adorable Magnolia scene, masked perfectly and beautifully colored. Thank you for sharing it with us at Midweek Magnolias.

    Lahko napišem, da mi je ta vrečka ena izmed tvojih najlepših kreacij. Čudovit izbor barv, z okusom izbrane štampiljke za maskiranje, da o dekoraciji ne govorim. Bravo, Tamara, lp, Saša
