Girl in green......

Hello,

I hope everyone is good and you are having a great week.

Here is a little card I made.


I have coloured my Magnolia image with distress ink pads. I have stamped my image with versafine black onyx onto Waterford water colour paper. I have added stickle glue star dust for my sparkle. I have sprayed my flowers with glimmer mist iridescent gold. The papers have been distressed with Tim's distressing tool and edged with walnut stain.


Thank you so very much for looking!

I wish you all a wonderful weekend!

love

inks used
skin - antique linen, tattered rose
