How many of you out there have created a beautiful card using
a Magnolia stamp only for the recipient to ask....
Why does it not have a face?
Well I have and if I am honest it has led to me ignoring my Magnolia and Hanglar collections!
Magnolia/Hanglar purists please look away now!!
what do you think?
I am reasonably pleased with the results....however, I feel it is a little too early for me to produce a tutorial at present, I would like to master the technique first, but I intend to share with you how I do it in the not too distant future.
and here is a Magnolia
Although I am pleased with Tilda's face I am not so happy with either her hair or fingers.....I need to work much harder on these areas, but as they say "practice makes perfect".
This one is already calling for a re-do - so I may very well pull the image off the card and have another stab at it!!
Oh and apologies for not visiting your blogs over the last few days but I have been a little preoccupied with other things but normality should resume shortly.
It was never my intention to offend, I merely wanted to share with my readers how I had attempted to solve the one issue that had led to my Magnolia & Hanglar Stanglar collections being ignored and unused.
Ny on every time I gave a non-crafting friend or family member a card or gift with one of these characters on it I heard the same comments regarding the lack of features.
But I never expected the reaction I got from Magnolia luvvies,
some were very positive, whilst others were quite frankly downright rude.
There have also been questions raised regarding the copyright of stamped images - a grey area at the best of times.
(Please note that I have never been contacted by either Magnolia or Hanglar regarding the above pieces of work)
So I thought it prudent to withdraw my offer of a tutorial and
the stamps I am sad to say continue to gather dust!
