Magnolia Pink Friday.......

Hello,

Wow what a beautiful day to wake up to. Spring has definitely sprung it is glorious! I hope you are feeling spring where you are too.

I am totally in love with this sweet Tilda that I had to make another card with her.


I have stamped my Magnolia image with versafine black onyx onto Waterford watercolour paper. I have coloured her in with distress ink pads. The background has been distressed with tattered rose. I have edged everything with vintage photo. The teeny butterflies are a punch. The leaves are a Martha Stewart punch. Claire my daughter bought me this gorgeous ribbon from Bombay Duck as she immediately thought of Magnolia when she saw it and I think she is so right. I love it.

I have received this award from the very lovely  and talented Antonia.


Antonia  thank you so much, this is so kind of you.


Thank you so very much for looking and I wish you all a most brilliant weekend! I will be teaching at Crafts U Love tomorrow. I am so looking forward to meeting everyone!

love

ThePurplePlace said...

Hi Kim,

Admiring your card once again and wonderful what type of glitter you use, as this is especially lovely? Also how do you create such a fine line around the borders? DO you use a glue pen of some sore?

I really think your cards are lovely and I was even more impressed seeing you today in my current issue of Magnolia Ink.

You have such amazing talent and are truly an inspiration !!

Thank you,
Lisa

Hi Lisa,
The glue I use is Rangers Star Dust stickle glue. I don't use anything to guide me on the border just the nozzle of the glue.
I hope this helps.
