Wonderful Wednesday.......


I hope you are all well and that your week is good so far. Some time ago the Magnolia and Hanglar teams were invited to make cards for a Norwegian Magazine Ett Trykk. Well, it was such an honoured to be featured amongst these incredibly talented ladies and I thank Ashild so much for this wonderful opportunity it was such a such a pleasure! Here is the card I made.

I stamped my Magnolia image with versafine black onyx onto Waterford water colour paper. The background was distressed with tattered rose and the edge to this and everything on my card was edged with walnut stain. The stickles are Star Dust. I glimmer misted my flowers with iridescent gold. The leaves are quickutz and the butterflies Martha Stewart.

Thank you so very much for your visit and a big thank you for all your comments and wishes for Luca I have passed them onto Claire and she has taken great comfort from them you are all so very wonderful and kind!
