~ Shades of Grey ~

**
~ Shades of Grey ~
Finally I took some time for me and my crafting and
played along with some challenges.
With so many challenges out there it's hard to know
where to start, all I knew was there were going to be
Magnolia stamps involved.
**
I haven't stamped Romantic Tilda before and I had a
lot of fun with her, she's so pretty.
**
**
My initial thoughts were to colour using pink, but after
choosing my papers I decided for a bit of a monochrome
look with Shades of Grey. Somewhere along my blog
hopping I saw a Vintage Challenge, but now I have no
idea where I saw it.

My next challenge was for a Masculine Card. This wasn't
a blog challenge, simply a challenge for me. I steer clear
of male cards generally however there comes a time when
it's a males birthday when I simply have no choice.

This is my take on the sketch from Sketch Saturday.
I've had this stamp in my collection forever - I think it
was one of the very first stamps that I ever bought.
I think it's very similar to the very popular Popcorn
Bear stamps.

Surely you didn't think I'd just make one Magnolia card.
The bear card would have been a Magnolia card to if they
made bear stamps!!!!
**
Magnolia-licious Highlites are having a Nautical themed
challenge this week - perfect, I got to stamp up one of my
Magnolia Pirates that I so desperately needed and had
yet to use!!!! I think we've all been guilty of that hmmmm.
The sketch is from Friday Sketchers.
**
I didn't have any pirate paper so I used the same
Papermania paper pad as I did for my Shades of
Grey Romantic Tilda card.
Somehow I don't think this little pirate is going to strike
up to much fear on the Seven Seas.
