It's a Magnam...or two...

Afternoon bloggers! Here's Magnum...isn't he cute? I won him! Yay! And where I won him (Ladybugs) are having a challenge, which I hope I'm not too late for. (No I'm not!)
You might have spotted Magnum and Lilly his mouse friend, half way through being coloured on my WOYWW post yesterday, with odd bits of paper stuck over another sheet of paper.
Here he is finished. I've done a bit of paper piecing where you print or stamp your image over some backing paper and then cut out bits to piece over the image...
There's quite a lot of layers, and some cheats too! The topper has, the red, the first digi, then the added papered chair, then another Promarkered Magnum and then the TV, but the legs of the TV are the legs from the first digi...yes, I'm confused too!
Counting them all there's about nine! but they are all stuck down to look like one image.
I used scraps of paper ... first, print what you want on to plain paper/card and then, stick (I used a smidge of photo glue, coz it peels off easy) some scraps over the image, print it again and those bits of scrap paper will then have the image printed on them too, ready to be cut out.
Here you can see I've paper pieced the arm chair with some small flowery papers by Pink Petticoat and in side, I've paper pieced the cake case.
All the papers are Pink Petticoat...I'm still using up my 'bits' and most of my bits are PP.
The red edging you can see is red Promarker edged around some paper/card but inside it's red pen.
Magnum, Lilly and the TV have been coloured with Promarkers. The Bakers twine was a freebie from PaperCraft Inspiration Magazine this month...
The sentiment was done on the computer. There was a comma after 'take the best chair' but John, (hubby) kept reading it as 'Take the best chain' So I've scribbled over it with a white gel pen...(but have since inked it in with a pen) think he needs new reading glasses! (Click photos to make them bigger)
The Font is a freebie it's called Idolwild download it HERE or just Google the name. New Follower! Hi and a Big wave to Tracy Jensen, who's loves knitting and rabbits I think!! Angora knits
That's it! Tomorrow I'll show you the new Freebie from Bugaboo, hope you've picked up this weeks. Thanks for stopping by! If I'm not too late I'd love to add this to some...
