Tomic challenge 19

A nice new easy cahllenge for those Magnolia fans on TOMIC this week, use a doohickey and a seated image on your creation.
I have decided to use Edwin with butterfly from the butterfly dreams collection for my card, i colored hime with copics and just totally enjoyed using an Edwin for a change, the poor dears are so neglected as we all go for girls first, but this time i had to play with this little darling.
My dear friend Barb made cards like this a few weeks ago and i loved the design of the circle folded in half to make a rocker card, so cased this idea from her.  Also those tiles that you see looking very much like scrabble pieces i actually downloaded and you can find out about them HERE
i used the flourish doohickey for my card, added some star brads that i inked to give them a more masculine feel, ribbon from my stash and some gauze from my medicine cabinet.
On the inside of my card i used another of the doohickeys a vintage tag and added some paint around the edges and a couple of butterflies to tie the whole lot together.
have a wonderful week


  1. This is fabulous Paola - I love all the creases you've put in his jeans, they look great.


  2. Love that gauze, it really works. Thanks for the tip about the scrabble tiles, I downloaded them when you first talked about 'em and then promptly forgot 'em! I'll remember them this time.

  3. What a pretty masculine card! I just love the coloring on his pants, it really looks like denim.


I really appreciate the time it takes to leave a comment, totally makes it all worthwhile, thanks so much for making my day.
