Magnolia Down Under Challenge #7
Good morning everyone and HAPPY EASTER to all.Todays Magnolia Down Challenge theme is Sepia and oh my gosh,I had no idea what I was going to do.I had many plans to do all brown tones but I couldn't bring myself to colouring Tilda only brown/sepia tones.......lol.......I also wanted to use some patterned paper and didn't have one that was just sepia tones,so I chose this one which had some red and green in it.So my plan was to ink everything I could in Vintage Sepia ink.I have inked the flower,edge of DP and all the cardstock other than red in the sepia ink.The flourish was also stamped in sepia ink.The image I used was stamped for me by Bec,thanks Bec I love this one.I hope you like it and I hope it gives you some inspiration for doing your card,so why not really challenge yourself and join in.Have a wonderful chocolate filled day.

Your use of patterned papers is fabulous and you really should do a tutorial on inking/sponging - you have mastered that art to absolute perfection!

Love the colouring on Tilda and the overall layout, stunning card!
