so tight lipped about this Collection which is now finally in rubbah!!!
My company, Deb's Creations, wanted to bring to the stamping world a Collection that is both
different & Australian by nature- hence this amazing collection came into being:) My very talented
Illustrator, Linda Catchlove, has brought these 4 beautiful little faeries to life through her passion
of the Australian bushland & forests. Linda worked for the Walt Disney Studios here in Australia
for 10 years before branching out to follow her dream & now has her own studio & is currently
working on her own artwork for her own Exhibition- whoot whoot!

Here is my 2nd Sneakie of my card- pretty tricky hey lol!
I did up this Cherry Tilda Card for the Challenge over at Cardabilities using their awesome Shetch #13
Had fun doing this card as I have used colours with my Copics that I hadn't used before- I am a
beginner LOL! I wanted to use a kind of Vintage style on my card- well I tried hahaha!
I have finally finished the Magnolia Wedding Rotunda for my son's wedding early next year:)
I used the Wedding Collection stamps from Magnolia & they suited perfectly. I used Yellows
& Purples to do the colours as this is their colour scheme. It was a big project but so much fun
I found this Tilda very trying! It was hard to pick a colour combo for her whilst keeping
the theme Australian:) She does remind me of Bindi Irwin tho. I handmade the 2 little
flowers & I have over edited the pic- making the blending look terrible lol!
Thanks for stopping by peeps & have a brilliant week
Another update for my blog today- on a roll here lol!
What could go nicer together then sweet little Tildas & Flowers, kinda like icecream &
choc chips hey:) Yummo:) I have been trying to use up some of my scrap paper stash &
flower stash, so slowly getting there- I should be making Christmas Cards but constantly
get side tracked haha!
I used the beautiful Circus Tilda- in the pink, for 1 of the cards & an older Tilda from
my Magnolia Collection- 60s Tilda.
Thank you for stopping by Peeps & have a great weekend
I did this card last night using the super sweet little Twins Stamp for the Magnolia- Cozy
Autumn Collection- available in my Store. I used flowers from my flower stash & also a
Zva Creative Flourish & a lil cute Charmer from my Store as well
I had so much fun with my Copics colouring this cute image & got to try out my 4 new
Sketch Marker colour combo R81, R83 & R85 for the Pink Dress & B91, B95 & B97
for the Blue Dress. I used E000, E00 & E11 for the flesh colours plus R20 for the cheeks.
I have been off in Fairy Wonderland lately! I just love this lil Fairy from Wags N Whiskers
& thought I would do a bright & colourful card to match her- Angelica. With a new Wags
N Whiskers Release just around the corner- so exciting!!! I wanted to used the 4 special
lil visitors to my home lol!
