Tomic challenge 19

A nice new easy cahllenge for those Magnolia fans on TOMIC this week, use a doohickey and a seated image on your creation.
I have decided to use Edwin with butterfly from the butterfly dreams collection for my card, i colored hime with copics and just totally enjoyed using an Edwin for a change, the poor dears are so neglected as we all go for girls first, but this time i had to play with this little darling.
My dear friend Barb made cards like this a few weeks ago and i loved the design of the circle folded in half to make a rocker card, so cased this idea from her.  Also those tiles that you see looking very much like scrabble pieces i actually downloaded and you can find out about them HERE
i used the flourish doohickey for my card, added some star brads that i inked to give them a more masculine feel, ribbon from my stash and some gauze from my medicine cabinet.
On the inside of my card i used another of the doohickeys a vintage tag and added some paint around the edges and a couple of butterflies to tie the whole lot together.
have a wonderful week

Tomic challenge 18

Happy Birthday Magnolia, and we are celebrating with another fab challenge Halloween and since we celebrating we would like to see anything but a card.

Boy did i have a hard time deciding what to do, we dont celebrate halloweeen in SA, and being Jewish we dont do halloween so i was kinda stumped.  I decided to make a pumpkin, and firstly the pumpkin i made when shown to my friend she said, wow! that sure is big, so i binned it and started again to make a smaller pumpkin, well this beauty you see took another four tries before it looked anything like the LARGE original.

I added lots of leaves and i made some twirly pipe cleaners that i dipped into some glittah.
And after deiciding to use the little Tilda with her broom, unfortunately i cant seem to find her name anywhere right now, i thought she kinda looked like little miss muffet so i made a spider using felt and some pipe cleaners, i had forgotten i had them, now i cant stop using them, lol.
And lastly with a led light inside to light the eye and nose features i cut into my pumpkin.

Enjoy the celebrations with us
