Multi Challenge Card


I made an A5 card for a change as the die was so large. This is the Magnolia image I coloured the other week, she is so pretty and so glad my mojo returned as just love her on this card. Coloured with Copics, Derwent Pencils and Stickles.
Also distressed the paper with Tims Tool and inked with a Cocoa Chalk Ink Pad.


Sorry about the terrible piccie, really dull here and the conservatory is normally the best place for light. It is so much prettier IRL. I followed the sketch at this weeks Sketch Saturday. The papers are a mix of BG and Fancy Pants and Chocolate Bazill cardstock I have added a glaze to the sledge though not picked up and White Flower Soft around her feet. The frame is Spellbinders and the sentiment is also Magnolia. Lace is from stash.
Now must get on with a few chores
Thanks for Looking and enjoy the rest of your week!
