Hi, Hope you have had a lovely weekend. The sun is shining here at the moment.
But I am feeling the cold.
Today I would like to share my card I made a few weeks ago. From the title you will have guessed its a magnolia stamp From the butterfly dreams collection 2011
only have 2 magnolia stamps at present and this one you have already seen. It was used on the canvas bag I made. But I like to use my stamps over and over again on different projects. So you will see them again been used on new idea's and projects.
I just love the magnolia doohickey dies but they are a little expensive.
but a girls got to have what she like sometimes.
I like the delicate colours you can get by using your distress inks to colour your images.
Still like to use my copic markers, but with inks I seam to get more a of a look I'm happy with. Maybe I just need more practice with my copic colouring.
And here's the inside of the card, simple but compliments the front of the card.
Needed to make a box envelope to accommodate this card as the flowers made it to bulky to go in to regular envelope. I found a tutorial on how to make the envelope on this ladies blog site.
needed to adapt the measurement's to accommodate this card, as it was bigger than 6x6. Used the 12x12 Prima botanics paper for the envelope,
as I had used paper from same collection 6x6 paper pad for card.
I just love papers that have writing on or scrolls and flourishes, post cards images.
Just a little reminder, the challenge is still open at the paperlane this months challenge is
