Hello Weekend....


Hello,

Today I have made a card using the Magnolia Summer Lazy Days Collection.

I have coloured my image with distress inks and have distressed the background with weathered wood.

The flowers and leaves are quickutz dies and have been distressed with frayed burlap. The borders have been stamped with sepia versafine.

Today I am off to Crafts U Love to spend the day teaching and meeting some lovely ladies. I wish you all a wonderful weekend.

love

Sandie said...

What a wonderful card Kim. I love how you get your inks to shade so well.. what do you apply them with? I use mine like watercolours and always seem to get harsh lines when I shade, so I have to keep blending it out.. which in turn gets rid of the shading *rolls eyes*

Love all the detailing on your card, and the ribbon is gorgeous!!

Have a wonderful day teaching today
