Exciting news from Magnolia and a Friendship Card....

Hello,

How are you all doing brilliantly I hope! I have some exciting Magnolia news to share with you today.

First of all Magnolia Inspiration is having a totally new look!
 This will all be happening on the 1st of December! So please do go and check that out, remember the 1st of December! 
There are also exciting new developments occurring behind the scenes to the Magnolia Ink Magazine. There are going to be different formats and styles etc., so I am really looking forward to seeing the new changes they have in store for us!



Here is a card I made using this sweet Tilda and Edwin image. I have stamped my image with versafine black onyx onto Waterford 300gsm hp watercolour paper. I have coloured my image with distress inks. The background has been distressed with weathered wood and this and everything on the card has been edged and distressed with walnut stain.

The stickles I have added are silver ice and star dust. I have sprayed the flowers and doily with iridescent gold. The tag and butterflies are clear heat embossed. The border is die cut using  a Magnolia Doo Hickey die. The leaves are Nellie punched and embossed.



I thank you so much for your visit!

Have a wonderful weekend and if you are out and about Christmas shopping, take care and  I hope you find everything you are looking for.

love
