Magnolia DT card....

Hello,

How are you today. Hope you are all well. 

Today I have made a Magnolia DT card.


I have masked this sweet Tilda onto a chocolate box. I have coloured my images with distress ink pads. I stamped my images onto 300gsm watercolour paper with versfine black onyx. The background is distressed with antique linen and I have edged this and the papers with walnut stain. I have glimmer misted the flowers and added stickles stardust to these and my image.


Thanks so much for looking and have a wonderful day!

A day to celebrate.....

Hello,

Oh I can't tell you how great it is to be able to post again. My computer was broken and I have been so lost and missed you all so very much I can't tell you. So, before I begin to visit you all again here is a card I would like to share with you.


I have coloured my Magnolia image with distress ink pads. The image has been stamped onto 300 gsm watercolour paper  with black onyx versafine. I have added stardust stickles too. The flowers and leaves are punched and distressed with walnut stain and stardust stickles. The hearts are cuttlebug, distressed and edged with liquid pearl and stickles. The papers have been distressed with vintage photo and I have edged with gold leaf pen and gold stickles. 


Thank you so much for looking. Again it is so great to be back and I can't wait to get a blogging!

Here is a card that I made for another class at Crafts U Love. Again, another huge thank you to everyone who came. You are all just the sweetest ladies ever and I thank you so much for your kindness to me.


I have made a pockets and tags card using the masking technique. I found a great link on the amazingly talented Camilla's blog. It is a tutorial by Kari. Thank you for sharing Kari I love it! I have coloured my Magnolia  images with distress ink pads. The images were stamped onto 300gsm watercolour paper with versafine onyx black. The backgrounds were distressed with tattered rose. I have added lots of stickles. Here are some more images of the rest of the card.
