Loving Wishes……

Hello,

Oh woke up today to beautiful sunshine how lovely is that!

loving wishes winter tilda

My card today is a Magnolia image stamped with versafine onto 300gsm water colour paper and coloured with distress ink pads. I have distressed the background with broken china and using Tim’s distressing tool on all edges then edged with walnut stain. The Magnolia snowflake is stamped around the edges with antique linen. Then to finish heaps of stickles.

Tracy said...

Does the tool give you a more subtle background than just using the foam on it's own with the distress inks? Mine keeps going blotchy and I'm using the mat (non stick sheet). This is so beautiful, and the image is superbly coloured and your finishing touches make this card beautifully unique.
Happy crafting
