The Magenta Stamp contest

Over on the Magenta website I discovered a monthly card challenge with a $25.00 gift certificate prize!  Well I love magenta stamps and always look forward to talking to the owners at the stamp shows, they are wonderful, very hardworking folks! So to find a contest with such a nice prize, no one had to twist my arm!
 I have lots of blog posts regarding the Magenta stamp line and how to get great images with these beautiful stamps.
The Challenge is to use a winter stamp, actually to use two and wouldn't you know it I have a ton of Magentas and only a few winters!!

 I posted these yesterday as a part of my WOYWW: 

Today I am entering the challenge and showing you the finished card.
It is a random draw, so the card skill isn't important - I had a lot of fun making this card!
I had less fun trying to get a good photo of it.  

I used a very color dense G45 background paper and silver chip board and crafters companion sparkle pens ( I LOVE those!!)

here is the second stamp:

trying to get the best photo:

Here is the link for the Contest if you'd like to enter.
Why not, maybe you'll win the prize!!

  1. Hi Ginny, oh wow, this is a really stunning image, coloring and card! Just beautiful. Crystal

  2. Love your card! Thanks for joining the Magenta challenge.

  3. What a gorgeous result - I too wondered about the no female angels too ;-). Regardless, it is still beautiful.

  4. Oh how I wish I had know you loved Magenta a year ago. I had to give a whole box of the stamps away because we were getting ready to go over here to the Philippines and she said she would use them. I tried to tell her how but it was obvious she didn't care and didn't know the treasure I had just given her. Oh how I wish you had them Ginny.

  5. Very nice project ! Thanks to joinning the Magenta challenge !

  6. Pretty card! Wonderful layering and colouring. Thanks for joining in the Magenta monthly challenge. :)
