Happy, Happy, Joy, Joy............................


Hello,

I was so excited yesterday when I puchased some new Magnolia's. After I lovingly took them out of my bag I just had to use them. Here is my first go using the sketch this week for the challenge on Friday Sketchers by the brilliant Claudia Rosa.

I have coloured Tilda with distress ink and stickled her wings. My papers I have distressed with tattered rose and new mahogany. I have stamped the sentiment and snowflake with archival plum. I have added stickles to the tulle (think that's how you spell it) to add a bit of sparkle.

Have an extremely lovely Sunday.

love kim x

Hello it's me sorry I didn't stipulate that the stamp Kelly Panacci is where I got the sentiment stamp. It is on a sheet of Christmas stamps.
