DT Magnolia - Spring is bursting out all over......


How are you today all good I hope. It is Monday and the sun is shining I hope the weather is being kind to you wherever you are.

Today I have made a dt card for Magnolia.

These are some of the new 2010 Easter Magnolia stamps and I love them all they are too adorable for words!  I have stamped my image onto 300 gsm watercolour paper with black onyx versafine. I have coloured my images with distress ink pads. I have cut Edwin and the tulips out and mounted them onto card distressed with antique linen.

I have sprayed the tulips, bunny and flowers with iridescent gold glimmer mist. The stickles I have used is stardust. The Easter letters, tiny flowers and leaves are die cut using quickutz. The butterflies are punched.

All the papers are the new Magnolia paper collection so scrummy.

I wish you all a fantastic day and thank you so very much for looking. I would also like to send hugs and love to everyone who leaves me a comment, you are so very lovely and I treasure you all.
