Just Magnolia week 11.......


Hello,

Well Summer is well and truly here how beautiful has this weather been. I have made a card for the start of a new challenge over at Just Magnolia. This week we have been given a fabulous sketch by the amazingly talented Bev! Thank you so much Bev this was a joy to work with and I definitely will be using it again.


I have coloured my image with distress inks. For the background I have used antique linen and frayed burlap. I have distressed my papers with frayed burlap also. I have stamped my image on watercolour paper and then die cut her using the circle nestie after cutting around her legs first to put the nestie behind them so I didn't cut them off.

The Magnolia flowers have been mounted on sticky fixers and coloured with tattered rose and covered in stickle glue. The border punch I used is fiskars.

I have been sent this award from sweet Penni. Thank you so much you are so kind to think of me I am so very happy to receive this.


Well, I am off to a family wedding today. I am so happy to be attending the union of two lovely young people and meeting all my family. Fingers crossed that thunder storm holds off for the photo's.

Whatever you are all doing this weekend have a wonderful time and thank you so much for looking.

love
