Just Magnolia - Sketch by Mina.....



Hello,

I hope you are all well. This week has just gone like lightning! Today is the start of a new challenge for Just Magnolia. We have a sketch for you designed by the fabulous Mina to follow. Thank you Mina this was brilliant to play with.


I have coloured my Magnolia image with distress inks. I have put some dries clear glue on Santa's beard and hair and then sprinkled glitter over this for a fine shimmer. I have distressed my background with weathered wood and then stamped snowflakes around the edge with old paper. I have distressed the edges of my papers and card with Tim's distressing tool and then distressed them with vintage photo. I have also distressed my flowers with vintage photo and added stickle glue.


Thank you so very much for looking. Wishing you all a wonderful weekend!

love
