Fill Your Life With Sunshine And Your Heart With Love...

Magnolia-licious DT
Back To School/Fall Colors

Hi Everyone!  Today the Magnolia-licious DT is bringing a super fun challenge theme to you.  Sharon got to choose the theme and she has asked for 'Back To School' or 'Fall Colors'.  You can get all of the challenge details on the Magnolia-licious Highlites Challenge Blog.  Hop on over there and check out the rest of the DT projects.  You're sure to be filled with inspiration to get you started on your own project for the challenge.  I can't wait to see what you come up with!!!

Now for my project...I was short on time, so it was a quick one.

Fill Your Life With Sunshine
And Your Heart With Love

Today I have a very simple bookmark/tag to show you.  I didn't have a lot of time, so a bookmark/tag was a great choice.  And, it fits the 'Back To School' theme perfectly.  I already had the base of the tag sitting on my craft desk.  I actually cut it out quite a while ago when I got the Magnolia DooHickey 'Old Swedish Lace' die from Magnolia-licious.  I just never got around to using it!

So, I picked out dp's from BoBunny's 'Vicki B' 6x6 paper pad, which is currently on sale at Love To Stamp.  Then I looked through my stamps from Magnolia's 'Winner Takes All' collection and I just had to use this sweet little #378 'Chess Tilda'.  I JUST LOVE HER GLASSES!!!  I don't ever remember seeing a Tilda with glasses and I think she is just the sweetest thing!  I have her sitting on #557 Soccer Bench.  The entire 'Winner Takes All' collection is available at Magnolia-licious.  You can also get the entire collection in Mini form!!!  Magnolia-licious has the lowest prices and best customer service.  It's the only place that I shop for my Magnolia's.

What else is on this tag?  I practically shredded some cheesecloth and scrunched it up behind the image.  I grabbed some orange string from my stash, wrapped it around a few times, and then split the ends.  I topped the knot with a heart button that I found in my button drawer.  The sentiment is from Hero Arts and I stamped it on some kraft paper cut with my Magnolia DooHickey 'Dream Tag' die.  The flowers and gems were left over from a Magnolia DT kit that I got many months back.  And finally, all edges were given a bit of age with some Ranger DI Walnut Stain.

I colored this little cutie with Copic markers.  Here are the color details:

E000, 00, 01, 11, 13, 40, 41, 42, 43, 44, 50
R20, 30, 81, 83, 85
W3, 5
N0, 1, 3
G0000, 12, 21, 24

That's all I have for today!  Thanks so much for stopping by.  I hope you'll leave a little note to let me know you were here :-)

Gorgeous tag! Love it!

Chris said...

What a delightful tag! I love the texture you included, too! Interesting that part of the brown tag looks like a Nestie cutting die. The darkened area looks like where the cutting edge is. The color looks like the color of the metal, too. I love this. It's so warm! The bench is divine!
