Magnolia bookmark......


Hello,

I hope you are all well. Today I have a bookmark to show you that I made for my sweet fellow Magnolia DT member Hanna. I won a competition that Hanna was running on her blog to win a card made by Hanna. I was so happy to have won this and when I received it, it was out of this world beautiful. This bookmark is just a little thank you.


I have coloured my Magnolia image with Ranger distress inks. The Magnolia delicious papers have been distressed with Tim's distressing tool and then sprayed with glimmer mist and the edges have been distressed with vintage photo. I have added some paper artsy swirls around the edge with versafine sepia. I have added crackle paint to the heart and tag and spritzed them with glimmer mist. The letters are cuttlebuged.



This is the back of the bookmark. I have stamped my Magnolia heart keyhole with versafine sepia. Coloured with distress ink and sprayed with glimmer mist. I have then added stickle glue around the edge. The scalloped oval is a cuttlebug die and distressed with vintage photo.



This is the card that I won from Hanna. Isn't it absolutely beautiful. Thank you Hanna I will treasure this.

Thank you so much for looking. Have a wonderful day and take care.

A Magnolia Wednesday.......



Hello,

I hope everyone is well and your week is being good. I have made a card today using my Magnolia stampclub kit. They are just so super adorable and I am now officially in love with the new Magnolia papers. They are just everything I love in a paper. Wonderful designs, delicious colours and amazing quality yep definitely in love with them.

I have coloured my image with distress inks. On the knife and fork that I masked Tilda onto and the pears. I have also added some silver glimmer mist it gives such a gorgeous shimmer. The background is distressed with tattered rose and edged with frayed burlap. I have dotted around the edge of my image card some liquid pears.



To stamp my sentiment. I first inked up the sentiment with tattered rose. Then using versafine sepia I just ink the wording. Then added some stickle glue in stardust. I have used Tim's distressing tool to distress the edges of my papers and distressed the edges with frayed burlap.

I have had the pleasure of receiving this award from the lovely Nina. Thank you so much I am just delighted to have been given this by you!



I would like to pass this award onto everyone who visits me as a thankyou for all your wonderful support! Thank you so much for looking.
