Midweek Magnolia Midweek Reminder DT Creation - Winter Blues

Hello everyone how are you all? Things have been busy here, I've got my cupboards getting delivered today for my new craft room...........can only do bits at the mo with hubsters hand still in plaster.

Anyway I'm here today with the midweek reminder for the Midweek Magnolia Challenge & the theme this fortnight is..........
WINTER BLUES
...........which doesn't mean it has to be winter, we just want to see 'BLUE' as your prominent colour. I used this challenge to make my creation for the Live & Love Crafts challenge which is 'Perfume'.
WARNING PICTURE HEAVY
My favourite perfume comes in a blue box, so this was the inspiration for this...............

I made a box for the perfume & matching body lotion...............

Yep my favourite perfume is Dolce & Gabbana 'Light Blue'. The lotion is from a gift set hubster got me last year but the bottle is a new one that hubster got me this last christmas, its tradition loL, even if I still have some left :0) 
The inside of the box is decorated to compliment the top. I have used a 'Doily' & Tim Holtz 'Weathered Clock'. Doily was from Live & Love Crafts.

I have used uber gorgeous Maja Design 'Vintage Autumn Basics' 6x6 pad. I have inked all the edges with Pumice Stone distress ink & machine stitched all layers.

I have made a bow out of this gorgeous Silky Crush ribbon & added the beautiful 'Rhinestone Pendant' & a small bottle from my stash which I filled with German Glass glitter & tied some 'Pearl String' around the top.

The edging is all with my Martha Stewart Around The Page punch.


I have finally inked up one of my new Magnolia's, this one is 'Tilda Rose Scent' from the Lost & Found Collection 2014 at Bunny Zoes. She has been coloured with Copics, colours used are..........
E11, E21, E00, E000, R32 - Skin
E29, E27, E25, E23, E21 - Hair
B97, B95, B93, B91, C3, C1, C00 - Gown, Slippers & Bottle
W5, W3, W2, W1 - Ground

I have added WOC flowers & a rolled flower made with a MB die. Magnolia Doo-Hickey 'Swirl' die & Tim Holtz 'Weathered Clock' die. 'Metal Corner' & 'Love Heart Clip'. The Shabby Pearl Rose trim, lace & Cheesecloth are all from Live & Love Crafts

Well thats it from me, you have a week left to play along with our challenge & if you need any inspiration then pop on over to see the uber gorgeous creations my talented DT buddies have made.........they always inspire me!!!

Thank you for stopping by it means a lot.
Squishy hugs to all mmwah

Sandra Mathis said...

Hi there,
I know I said several weeks ago I'd be back but as alwas; so much to do, so little time... Anywho; thrilled to see you joining in with LLC:s perfume challenge!!! Seriously stunning project. Fantastic colouring and so beautifully decorated. I'm not fond of blue in clothing, home decor etc. but some time ago I decided that blue is my favourite colour for crafting projects. :-) This'll probably last until I see something gobsmacking in pink or lilac, LOL. Light Blue is one of my favourite perfumes as well; the other one is Laura, which also comes in a blue packaging... Have a great weekend!

Hugz, Sandy

A STUNNING creation Vicky, absolutely love it! xx

Sherrie Clark said...

I so admire you cards and especially your copic coloring skills. Are you willing to reveal the secret on how you retain the white for highlights? Do you keep the spaces white and do not add any color to those areas or do you go back after it is colored and add the white with a pencil? Would love to get your secret tip!! Blessings and hugs, Sherrie
