Pink Thursday.......

Hello,

I hope you are all well! Just a quick post from me today.


I have coloured my Magnolia image with distress ink pads. I have stamped my image with versafine black onyx onto 300gsm water colour paper. The background is distressed with tattered rose and I have added silver stickles around the edge. My paper, flowers, butterfly and sentiment have been distressed with walnut stain. The punched flowers have been stamped with Hero Arts french script. The little stars and leaves are quickqutz. The butterfly and scalloped circle are cuttlebug and nesties.


Vicki has let me know that my card would qualify for the Saturday Spotlight challenge  their theme is bigger is better. Cool thanks Vicki!

Well, thank you so much for looking. I hope you have a wonderful day!

love

Ingrid said...

Hi dear Kim,
Ofcourse I don't mind you asked me to look at the pictures! That's how we can help each other. And yes, your last two post are good, I can see the whole card! And I'm so glad too, because they are beautifull. I discovered that when you use Internet Explorer things look different than in Mozilla or FireFox or what else somebody can use for internet. Maybe that's the reason.
And I found out that you have another blog with not only Magnolia's, so I changed the link on my blog so I can follow all of your cards. Thanks for your inspiration. Have a nice evening and till next time!
Hugs Ingrid
