Deep Ocean Challenge GDT – Bee Tilda with Kitty

Hi everyone! My previous project, the sakura garden paper bag, won the Spotlight entry at Deep Ocean challenge. Today I’ve got a wonderful opportunity to be the GDT for the new challenge. The theme is

I used the dots and stripes pattern papers from my old paper stash. They were from different brands but the colours matched very well. I used the new Magnolia stamps, Bee Tilda and Kitty Kit from the latest Spring Fever collection. The colour combo was so bright and colourful So I think it would be suitable for the birthday card.

I coloured the kitty with the inspiration from my blue Persian cat. He had very long hair but currently he just had his hair cut for the super-hot weather in Thailand.

Sakura Garden Paper Bag

Hi crafty friends! It is time for the new challenge at Magnolia Forever. The theme for this fortnight challenge is

The April month has come. This is the hottest month in Thailand. Also, there are many public holidays in this month. So many people would like to spend this time to travel abroad to escape from super-hot weather. One of the most famous destinations is Japan, where Sakura flowers are full blooming during this time. This becomes my inspiration for the flower-theme project.
Magnolia Sakura Garden Paper Bag
I made a paper bag using “Kokeshi Tilda” stamp from last year Sakura collection and “Japanese Tree of Luck” stamp from Summer Memories 2012 collection. The images were coloured with distress ink using no-line colouring technique. I found it a bit challenging to colour the tree and black hair but finally I was satisfied with the result.
