Magnolia With Love......

Hello,

Hope everything is good with you and your week so far is going well!


Today I would like to share with you a card I made for the demo at Crafts U Love. I have coloured my  Magnolia image with distress ink pads and it is stamped with archival coffee onto Waterford water colour paper. I have distressed the paper with Tim's distressing tool and edged this with vintage photo and gold stickles. The background is distressed with antique linen. The dies I have used are Magnolia's Doohickey Leaf, Swirl and Lace Border dies.



Thank you so much for visiting me and a huge thank you for all your comments I appreciate them so much you are all so very lovely! I wish you all a gorgeous day!

love
