Ivory/Cream at The Ribbon Girl Colour Challenge

 Happy Valentine's Day everyone! I hope you all had a very lovely day.
Today starts a new Colour challenge over at The Ribbon Girl blog and our theme this month is 'Ivory/Cream'.
I thought it would be fun to create a vintage photograph effect by colouring the images in sepia tones for my card.

I've used I Give You My Heart Tilda Duo and the kitty coloured in Sepia using Distress inks Antique Linen, Vintage Photo & Walnut Stain. I coloured only the heart in red using Aged Mahogany and a little bit of Black Soot to shade. 
I absolutely love him which is called Napoleon from Magnolia's Animals Of The Year Collection 2014. Don't these two look so cute together?

For my tag, I've used Romantic Tag and stamped coordinate text stamp from I Give You My Heart Tilda Duo on it. 

This is the list of the lovely materials from The Ribbon Girl I used:
55mm Emma Ivory Guipure Lace, 12mm 'Amanda' Ivory Scallop Flat Lace, Rose Bud Terracotta/Rust with One Leaf, Burgundy 20mm Open Roses, Ivory 30mm Wild Roses, Rolled Paper Flowers - Ivory Roses Kort & Godt, Wren Bird Charm Bronze, White No 80 Gutterman Top Stitch Thread,  Natural Hemp Twine, 5mm Pearls Ivory Self Adhesive, 5mm Red Pearl Self Adhesive, 11mm Pearl Ivory Flat Backs.

How to make flowers using DooHickey's dies

Hi everyone! I would usually post a card, however today's post is a little different. Today I am sharing with you how to make flowers that I made for Magnolia DooHickey Club vol.2. These flowers are made with Mulberry paper and Magnolia's DooHickey dies - Peony Petals.

To make flower you will need (per 1 flower): 2 large Peony Petals, 2 small Peony Petals, Mulberry paper, Distress inks, Heat tool, Sponge dauber, Mister filled with water, Adhesive, Pearl or Brads.

Step 1: Die cut mulberry paper using Peony Petals, and colour with Distress inks using a sponge dauber. They colours are a mix with Victorian Velvet, Spun Sugar and Worn Lipstick.

Step 2: Spray water on the petals with a mister and make the whole petals wet.

Step 3: While the petals are wet, tear the edge of petals with your fingers as shown in the picture.

Step 4: Dry them using your heat tool.

Step 5: Before they dry, form the shape with your fingers or tools as you like, then dry them completely.

Step 6: Assemble 2 large petals and 2 small petals together and glue the centre of petals.

Step 7: Adhere them with a pearl or brads to the centre.

Step 8: To decorate your box, you will need: 1 sash (using DooHickey’s Old Swedish Lace), 3 flowers, 2 tags (using DooHickey’s Tea label Tags and A Joyful Christmas (Text) - Magnolia Winter Wonderland 2013), 3 snowflakes (using DooHickey’s Snowflake Kit),  1 star (using DooHickey's Tea Label  Shapes, I heat embossed with gold embossing enamel and gold glass glitter), Tulle lace, Twine, Adhesive, Paper (Magnolia).

Step 9: Tie the tulle lace around your gift box, and put the tags and a sash.

Step 10: Adhere the snowflakes, the star and the flowers on the sash.

You're all done! This flower would be perfect for a gift topper, a hairclip, a corsage, a bouquet or a girly napkin ring etc.
