Magnolia vs Stampavie and Basic Grey Christmas


I just loved this Magnolia stamp which I inked up last week. I had not decided what to do with her but today thought that I would try some Christmas colours on her and I think she looks adorable in her little Christmas outfit. She fits two challenges this week as I have followed the sketch on the new Challenge blog Magnolia vs Stampavie and she also fits the one over on Basic Grey which was to make a Christmas Card.

I have used DP from the Basic Grey Dasher range, flowers are from my stash (didn't have any red and green ones so I have used my copics to colour in some old cream ones that I thought I may never use.

I am now off to try and find some nice red and green flowers so as to try another Magnolia stamp in similar colours and I have also mjust had an idea for altering another image for Christmas!!!



Thanks for looking.
