Just Magnolia - Challenge 1

What a fantastic new challenge the Just Magnolia Challenge is. This is their first week and already there are a mass of entries. The DT is amazing and their cards are sensational.

Well, I couldn't resist. Not only is it a new challenge but to start them off there is a sketch by Donalda. I adore her sketches, so my evening last night was all sorted!

I've rotated Donalda's sketch by 180 degrees and I decided to go for a pale blue and peach colour scheme, although the peach has ended up being quite strong and almost orangy coloured.

Thanks girls! I hadn't inked this Tilda up in ages so I had a real fun last night. Here's wishing you all every success with your new challenge.
