For this weeks Challenge at Tilda & Co Challenge it was to mix and match Magnolia stamps. This was so much fun after I got started. I took Tilda with balloons and Tilda with hearts and I switched there heads and then took the balloon out and replaced it with the kite. These were colored in with Copic Markers. All stamps are Magnolia except for the flowers and I am not sure where they are from. The house and fence image I got from Andrea and the kite and sun I got from Claudia. Aren't these stamps adorable?? So don't forget to check out the challenge this week.

More Faux Aged Metal with Patina Verdigris Effect Techinque

These are some samples I have done for Debbie's Die Cuts of her More Faux Aged Metal with Patina Verdigris Effect Techinque she came up with. I just love the effect of this technique. She done her samples with paints but on mine I tried it with the Radiant Rain Sprays and the Opalite Reinkers. I then ran them through the cuttlebug like she done and used black stazon on the raised edges. I just love the way it looks. The Tag from Debbies Die Cuts I done with the Opallite reinkers, then the frame and the notebook holder were done with the Radiant Rains. The tag and frame are stamps from Magnolia and the post it notebook is from Stampin Up. Make sure to check her blog out for some gorgeous samples
