Hello a couple of little challenges - DCM and Just Magnolia

Hello, the weather has perked up and it is sunny shiney here now!!! I have been taking it easy this morning. My partner got a flat tyre in the middle of the West End whilst working so he came home a lot later than normally. He was supposed to go and collect our wardrobe from Ikea but will have to go next week as time took over and the kids would not of seen him.
I have been having a play today with my printer so I managed to print off some papers and a digi image but will post it later as my stickles are drying.
In the meantime I made these cards for Just Magnolia (a sketch by Mina) and Daring Cardmakers (Autumn Purple).

For my Just Magnolia card I used a direct to paper ink technique to create a background for the lion. I then coloured him with promarkers and added him to the background. I used MME papers to compliment my MME stamp that i used in the background. I added faux stitching and a rub on and some leaves.

For the Daring Cardmakers the challenge this week is to use Purple on your projects. I used inks to create a background and stamped onto it using my Darcies stamp set which I got at funkykits. I adore this stamp set. The trees are imagincinse. I coloured in some dovecraft paper with my Orchid promarker to make it purple and stamped the trees onto it and cut them out I used this technique for the scarf too. I added some doodles and stars to embellish.
