Just Magnolia week 15 - Tab's Sketch....


Today we start a new challenge at Just Magnolia. This week we have a sketch to follow by the most brilliantly talented Tab.

I have coloured my image with distress inks and have distressed the background with tattered rose. I have masked my image and stamped the Magnolia flowers in the background and added stickles for some sparkle. I used Tim's distressing tool on the edges of my paper and distressed with vintage photo. I have stamped onto one of my flowers polka dots and and distressed with vintage photo. The heart is a little punched shape.

Well, I wish you all a most wonderful weekend. Claire and I say a very big thank you for all your get well wishes for baby Isabella. She is so much better now you would not believe it. So sending big hugs from us to you all, your support meant so much. Thank you for looking!

Aud said...

Your card is wonderful! Love your amazing coloring! Your distressed edges look great!
I have several tools for making distressed edges, but never use them, in stead I use my scissors, just scrape the edges, gives a great result every time! =0)

So glad to hear that baby Isabella is doing fine!

Have a wonderful weekend!

Big hugs,
