Picking Flowers........

Hello,

I hope you all had a great week and have lots of good things planned for the weekend.

Today I would like to show you a card I have made using one of the Magnolia Mini 6 x 6 papers. The one I have used in this card is Turquoise Butterfly.


I have stamped Tilda with Butterfly Dress from the Butterfly Dreams Collection with versafine black onyx, onto 300gsm water colour paper and then cut her out.

I have used a nestie shape for my background. I have distressed this with pumice stone and edged this and everything else with walnut stain. The leaves and swirl are Magnolia Doohickey dies.


I have covered an Embelliscrap button with some Magnolia 12 x 12 Spring Butterfly paper and threaded this with green thread. The ribbon is bias binding which I have sprayed with home made distressed water in a mini mister using weathered wood and crinkled it up and left it to dry.


The stickles I have added are Star Dust, Silver Ice and some Sakura clear glitter pen. I have also added teeny tiny half pearls to her shoes.

A very big thank you for visiting with me and big hugs to you for your comments they mean so much to me.

I would also like to wish Mother's everywhere a very Happy Mother's Day for tomorrow. Whether you be carers of children or fur babies have a wonderful day and a big thank you for always being there, you are amazing!


love

Absolutely gorgeous, but tell me, how on earth do you manage to get the glitter effect along the edges so thin and fine? What do you use? I wish I could color my stamp like you, you are simply fantastic at it.
