Magnolia Card..........



Well its taken me well over a week to make this card but here I am at long last and with a card that I am very happy with.
I've a draw of Magnolia stamps that never see daylight. I've been having a good sort out in my craftroom and have added lots on ebay and still loads more to go on if anyones interested.
I went totally OTT with this card and love the final result. Tildas been coloured with Copics and Prismas and dotted around her with a White Gel Pen. The papers are Magnolia, Dies Galore including my TH Weathered Clock, a big favourite right now. Found all my flowersoft in a cupboard so have added to the Magnolia Fence along with lots of MS Punched Butterflies. Cheesecloth, Stickles and a Viva Pearl Pen for a touch of detail and a scrummy piece of lace to.
Forgot to say the tag on the left is removal so you can always add a message there to and the fence has been arched giving a bit of dimension.


This is the inside. Again Magnolia Papers, Flowers, Punched Butterfly, MS Border Punch backed onto Bazzill Cardstock.
.

Alina said...

Hi, Claire, I haven't forgotten you, you asked me about the cardstock I use to colour my images, well, I use recordcards, nothing special, I buy them at a local store, on the package stays ''Ficard- Aurora'' and they have a website www.aurora-productions.be. The cards are smooth, sometimes I have problems printing out my images, I use a HP inkjet printer. If you need to know more about this, please ask.

Your card is very pretty, I have that lace in my stash, I love it! I haven't used cheesecloth yet, but it looks great!
hugs, Alina

Dora said...

No wonder you are so happy with your card .. it's beautiful! Love the colours and the fabulous solouring of Tilda.. not to mention all the details and that cheesecloth mmm :) I love that too. Hugs xxx
