Hooked on you!.....

Hello,

Wow! Can you believe we are into August already! This year is absolutely flying by. I hope you are all enjoying your summer and having brilliant holidays. Not sure what we will be doing but hopefully we will get ourselves together before this summer goes!


Today I would like to share with you a card I made using the images from the latest Magnolia Stamp Club release. I just love this little guy he is super cute and just had to ink him up. I have used versafine black onyx to stamp my images onto Waterford watercolour 300gsm paper. I have coloured my images with distress ink pads. The background is distressed with weathered wood and the edges are edged with walnut stain.

I have embossed the Magnolia Tag die and cut around this and then gone over it lightly with walnut stain to show the embossing. The shells I have again stamped in versafine and embossed with glitter embossing powder and then distressed with tea dye and weathered wood.

The stickles I have used are Star Dust and the die cut stars are quickutz.


I wish you all a most wondrous weekend and thank you so very much for your visit with me.

love
