Just Magnolia....


Hello,

Hope you are all having a great week.

I have made a card for the Just Magnolia blog. I have also made a tutorial on how I have put this together. If you would like to see click here. I have coloured my image with distress inks and added some stickles for sparkle. I have distressed the background with tattered rose and fired brick. I have used crackle paint on my grungeboard swirl and bazzill heart chip. The flowers have been glimmer misted with silver. I am also entering this card into Simon Says Challenge so much awesome inspiration go check it out.

Thank you so much for looking and a big thank you for your lovely comments. They mean the world to me you are so very sweet.

Big hugs to you all!

Kim, just read your tutorial and it's amazing!!! You make such gorgeous gorgeous cards!
Uh-oh does this mean almost everyone's going to start distressing and spraying glimmer mists like you? I think I'm going to be one of them! :) I've always wanted to use Glimmer Mists and thanks to your tutorial - will be brave enough to buy and use one. Now, just to know *which* color to buy....hmmm...

Thanks for the inspiration!!! :)
