Thursday Firsts.....


I hope you are all well and enjoying great weather. Summer has arrived in my world and it is fabulous! 

Well this is my firstest, everist Easel card. It was such great fun to make as I am sure you all know. But, I am so behind the times and thought I would have a bash. 

Be prepared for lots of pictures as I was not sure how to photograph one of these Easel thingies. I have stamped my Magnolia image with Versafine black onyx onto Waterford watercolour paper 300gsm. I use used distress ink pads to colour with. 

The background is distressed with spun sugar and distressed with walnut stain. I have sprayed the flowers and papers with glimmer mist iridescent gold. These I have distressed with Tim's distressing tool and edged with walnut stain.

I have used  stickle glue in star dust and a new one tiara I have fallen in love with it it is gorgeous! The butterflies are Martha Stewart and the leaves are EK Success. I have 3d the Magnolia heart banner to hold my card up. I have also added liquid pearls here and there.

Well thank you so very much for visiting me, and for all your comments I give you lots of hugs I appreciate your support so much it means the world to me.

Take care.
