A Magnolia Wednesday.......


I hope everyone is well and your week is being good. I have made a card today using my Magnolia stampclub kit. They are just so super adorable and I am now officially in love with the new Magnolia papers. They are just everything I love in a paper. Wonderful designs, delicious colours and amazing quality yep definitely in love with them.

I have coloured my image with distress inks. On the knife and fork that I masked Tilda onto and the pears. I have also added some silver glimmer mist it gives such a gorgeous shimmer. The background is distressed with tattered rose and edged with frayed burlap. I have dotted around the edge of my image card some liquid pears.

To stamp my sentiment. I first inked up the sentiment with tattered rose. Then using versafine sepia I just ink the wording. Then added some stickle glue in stardust. I have used Tim's distressing tool to distress the edges of my papers and distressed the edges with frayed burlap.

I have had the honour of receiving these awards from a most remarkable young lady Hanna. Hanna makes the most amazing creations and I would urge you to go and say hello you will not be disappointed!

Thank you so much for looking I would like to pass these awards onto everyone who visits me you are all so very special.

Hi Kim,

I've been a bit poorly with a chest/throat infection this past week so I'm way behind with my blog hopping and see I've missed several gorgeous cards on your blog.

This latest one is no exception and I love the special little touches you incorporate in each of your cards. Wonderful!
