Picking Flowers........

Hello,

I hope you all had a great week and have lots of good things planned for the weekend.

Today I would like to show you a card I have made using one of the Magnolia Mini 6 x 6 papers. The one I have used in this card is Turquoise Butterfly.


I have stamped Tilda with Butterfly Dress from the Butterfly Dreams Collection with versafine black onyx, onto 300gsm water colour paper and then cut her out.

I have used a nestie shape for my background. I have distressed this with pumice stone and edged this and everything else with walnut stain. The leaves and swirl are Magnolia Doohickey dies.


I have covered an Embelliscrap button with some Magnolia 12 x 12 Spring Butterfly paper and threaded this with green thread. The ribbon is bias binding which I have sprayed with home made distressed water in a mini mister using weathered wood and crinkled it up and left it to dry.


The stickles I have added are Star Dust, Silver Ice and some Sakura clear glitter pen. I have also added teeny tiny half pearls to her shoes.

A very big thank you for visiting with me and big hugs to you for your comments they mean so much to me.

I would also like to wish Mother's everywhere a very Happy Mother's Day for tomorrow. Whether you be carers of children or fur babies have a wonderful day and a big thank you for always being there, you amazing!

love
