Swirly, Pearly & Girly @ MAWTT

Good Morning folks, short and sweet as I'm nipping off to my
Mums for a couple of days to get her jobs done!
 It's time for a new challenge at


and this week my lovely pal Debs is Hostess and has chosen

Swirly, Pearly & Girly

What a fab title for a challenge theme!
 I've continued my threat to play with my Magnolia stamps and had a little play with a relatively new one (well new to me compared to how long some have been sat unused in my stash)
and I tried the lighter stamping technique, um not sure how I feel about it!!

This is Clown Tilda and I've coloured her up with Copics to match the Bo Bunny papers and lots of flowers that actually match better in real life than they do in this photo!

Head over to the main challenge blog for all the details and some gorgeous girly inspiration from my teammies this week.
Short and sweet like I said!!

Love 'n' Hugs Laurie xx

Janice said...

A really fab card Laurie and such a sweet stamp. Your colouring is brilliant as always but I think I'm a black line stamper at heart! (Personal preference I know ) great layout and use of flowers and dies so I still love your card. As for blog, work in progress. The background does not go the length of the blog & the banner has yet to be applied. Red wine now open so who knows the result! Jx

Tammy said...

WOW this is gorgeous Laurie! I love that sweet image and it's colored beautifully, fab embellishments too!!
Hugs, Tammy

Kathleen said...

Gorgeous card, fabulous papers, great layout and lots of lovely embellishments.

Hope you have a great time at the NEC and a lovely time with your Mum.

Judith said...

I usually stamp in brown - not quite as harsh as black but still dark - the jury's out on this no lines type of colouring for me! Your card looks very delicate and pretty - it definitely makes the whole effect paler, I might have to give it a go! The layout and flowers are fab. As for my stressy time - think I'm getting better - just not enough hours in the day! - hope you're doing ok hugs judith x
