Magnolia-Licious Monthly Challenge ~ Doohickey Kit #10 ~ Still AVAILABLE!!!!!

Hello Lovely Friends,

Magnolia-Licious has just posted their August 2018 Monthly Challenge. Our challenge is "Anything Goes with an optional Fall theme" and I have a really fun project to share.

I was away at a 4 day crop when I shopped for these papers. I walked around the store with the "Tilda With Plant" Stamp looking for something gardening related. Then I spotted this Graphic 45 paper with the yellow Gingham design along with the vegetables. Oh My Goodness it was PERFECT! The colors were perfect for the FALL theme this month as well.

I colored Tilda to match the paper, which is how I like to create. When I was coloring her I had a friend ask about that. She seemed surprised that I choose my paper first so I thought I would mention it to all of you. To me this allows for me to coordinate the coloring for a more seamless design.

To frame Tilda I did use one of Magnolia-Licious Rox Dies. This set is the nesting squares and have a really pretty cross stitch pattern around the edges. Isn't it really nice? Very affordable too, ONLY $12.00! See all the available Rox Dies HERE in the store.

All of the other dies I have used are all from the Doohickey Kit #10 which is available in the store (In limited quantities) The Bumble Bee was cut from white card stock and then colored with Copics. The wings were cut from vellum and then Wink of Stella was added for a little shimmer. The bumble Bee trails were also from the kit. It just pierces the paper...So cute! These dies used here in the bottom left hand corner are also ALL from the Doohickey kit #10. The hive die in the background, the stitched hexagon, and the coordinating scalloped hexagon tag die. Make sure to check this kit out in the store.
