Tuesday Talk

And YES I've plenty to talk about today!

Some time back CASology asked for suggestions for future cue words and my immediate thought was MAGIC.  I knew I had loads of stamps to fit this theme and they were definitely lacking some love just recently.  Then I forgot all about it, until up popped an email saying my word had been chosen and would I like to be guest designer for this challenge.

No brainer! I accepted immediately! So this is a very exciting day for me and I'm very thankful to have been chosen!

So out came those neglected stamps and away I went creating some MAGIC on my card.  I used a watercoloured background in magicky colours and then waited a while - so hard - for this to dry. Two beautiful stamps from Lavinia created my little bit of magic and a 'believe' sentiment from Clearly Besotted - you have to believe to make the magic work!

The dragon was sparkled up with Wink of Stella and then the stars got even more sparkled up with stickles. 

I finished my card by mounting the watercolour card onto some rich razzleberry cardstock - a very beautiful, magical colour.  I know it sounds bold, but I'm really loving this card!

Stamps: Lavinia, small dragon & star cluster; Clearly Besotted, Journal It
Inks: SU, rich razzleberry, tempting turquoise, daffodil delight; Memento, tuxedo black
Embellishments: Stickles, diamond; Wink of Stella, clear

So that's my excitement shared.  Hope you have fun creating something magical - so looking forward to seeing where this word takes you!  Thanks for your time today.
