Just Magnolia (and a few others!)

>> Sunday, 24 January 2010

It’s unusual for me to post on a Sunday but there was a load of rubbish on the TV last night so while Dave watched a terrible film (he will watch anything!) I escaped upstairs to my craft room.  I was dying to use my new distressing tool which arrived in the week, along with some Magnolia papers which are fabulous – very strokeable!


JM2T ilda is coloured with distress inks and I used a glitter pen to add sparkle to her wings and the little hearts she is blowing.  The two larger hearts and corner flourish are Crafty Individuals stamps.  You can’t really tell from the picture but I used silicone glue for the hearts so they are very slightly raised.   And I used another CI stamp for the rolled up scroll.  The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and the ribbon anJM3d button are from the pastel ribbon & button bag from Truly Scrumptious Crafts.  The sentiment was a freebie that came with a magazine.

I’m going to enter this card for the following challenges:

Just Magnolia – sketch

Secret Crafter – Colours

Magnolia Down Under – Valentines

Totally Gorjuss - Dimension
