Magnolia Monday #16 - Tilda's going Back 2 School!

It's another Monday so that means another Magnolia from me!
We did Back to School last week but I know many are still starting today and next week.
So in honor of all those new students I have Tilda going Back to School today!

Digi Doodles Shop - Anything Goes
Paper Crafting Journey - Anything Goes
Magnolia Stamp Lovers - Primary Colors
Raise the Bar - Primary Colors
Totally Tilda - Back 2 School
Totally Papercrafts - Back 2 School

Stamp Something - Back 2 School
Allsorts - Back 2 School
7 Kids College Fund - School (and a stamp they carry)
Frosted Designs - School Papers (I used graphed paper)
Just Magnolia - Bingo! (I chose Embossing, Paper Piecing and Ribbon)

Card Recipe:
Image - Tilda with Slate
Paper - Cherry Delicious by Sassafras
Medium - Copic Markers
Twine - The Twinery in Maraschino
Buttons - Stash
Border Punch - Martha Stewart
Acrylic Letters - Joanns
Sentiment - Making Memories
Ribbon - Stash
Embossing Folder - Sizzix



I tried something a little different with Tilda today. There seems to be a little trend going on for people to be doing "no black line" stamping. I can't say that I will go as far as making them almost non existent but I used Memento in London Fog instead of Tuxedo Black to give it a try.
It makes it look more "pencil drawn" than stamped and it certainly does make it harder to get the definition in your coloring. But I may try it again and see.
I hope you can come along and link up your Magnolia Monday creation for me to see!
Katie
