Just Magnolia - Masking.....



Hello,

I hope you are all well and are looking forward to the weekend!

This week there is a new challenge at Just Magnolia. The challenge this week is masking. For my card I have masked three Magnolia images. Tilda, Presents and Basket of presents. I have coloured them with distress inks. The background is distressed with tattered rose and I have stamped Magnolia snowflakes in sepia versafine around the edge and distressed the edge with walnut stain.



I have added stickles to my image too. The paper has been distressed with stained walnut and I have added liquid pearls to the scalloped edge which was made using a fiskars border punch. The Magnolia hearts I distressed with tattered rose and vintage photo and edged with walnut stain.

Thank you so very much for looking and a big, big, thank you for all your comments they mean so much to me! I wish you a wonderful weekend. I have the family for Sunday lunch so looking forward to that. Please do go and see the rest of the DT creations they are just amazing!

love
