Just Magnolia Week 24 - A Colour Combo....


Today is the start of a brand new challenge at Just Magnolia. This week the challenge is to use the colours Pink and Grey with the option of Black.

I have coloured my image with Ranger distress inks. The background is distressed with tattered rose. I stamped my swirls with Versafine grey and then added silver stickles. The star is a cuttlebug die.

I have used a sakura clear glitter pen to faux stitch around the edge of my papers. The border is punched with a Martha Stewart punch. The flowers are Prima. My Hero arts sentiment is stamped with black versafine.

Thank you so much for looking. Have a wonderful weekend. My Son's German girlfriend is arriving to stay tomorrow and I am having the family around for a Sunday roast going to have lots of cuddles with Luca and Isabella can't wait!

Esta combinación que ha puesto Magnolia, es una de mis preferidas, me encantan el gris-rosa.
Con esta combinacion y con los detalles que pones, el coloreado del stamp de Tilda y el diseño el card tiene que quedar de cine como ha quedado, me encanta.
Buen fin de semana. bss

Hi Kim
Your card is so lovely, I really love this colour combination for Christmas, I made lots of pink and black last year and they were very popular. Well Done.
I really want to try this distressing techique I have looked on the web for a good tutorial-and I have order a Tim HOltz ink pad. Do I just need a sponge, and apply by making circles???? I would appreciate a little help or link to a tutorial as O sp love this on cards.
Thanks so much Kim
Keep up the good work
