Magnolia bookmark......




Hello,

I hope you are all well. Today I have a bookmark to show you that I made for my sweet fellow Magnolia DT member Hanna. I won a competition that Hanna was running on her blog to win a card made by Hanna. I was so happy to have won this and when I received it, it was out of this world beautiful. This bookmark is just a little thank you.

I have coloured my Magnolia image with Ranger distress inks. The Magnolia delicious papers have been distressed with Tim's distressing tool and then sprayed with glimmer mist and the edges have been distressed with vintage photo. I have added some paper artsy swirls around the edge with versafine sepia. I have added crackle paint to the heart and tag and spritzed them with glimmer mist. The letters are cuttlebuged.


This is the back of the bookmark. I have stamped my Magnolia heart keyhole with versafine sepia. Coloured with distress ink and sprayed with glimmer mist. I have then added stickle glue around the edge. The scalloped oval is a cuttlebug die and distressed with vintage photo.


This is the card that I won from Hanna. Isn't it absolutely beautiful. Thank you Hanna I will treasure this.

Thank you so much for looking. Have a wonderful day and take care.

love
