Good afternoon folks....... it's almost the weekend, YAY!!! I'm slightly wondering where the week has gone though!!! I'm so loving being off with my kiddos just now and I'm definitely one of those people who enjoys every minute of being with them in the school hols!!! I am still working the odd day but in the main we're having oodles of family time ;o)
Well it's been a while since I made a Magnolia card and I had a ball with this one! I took up the challenge on the Magnolia-licious Highlites blog to use only papers and it was a lot of fun! I really enjoy picking out elements of a design paper and cutting them out to create nice embellies..... I suppose it looks like decoupage but without all the layers, lol! If you think this challenge might be a bit tricky then check out the DT creations and you'll be raring to go..... such imagination and talent! I also had a snoop around for a nice sketch to follow and came up with one at the latest Oldie But A Goodie Challenge..... I hope I'm forgiven for making a few tweaks as I did move the sentiment and the corner a bit but hopefully the basis of the design is still intact!! Again there are some stunning DT creations to help you on your way!
So for my card I used Kay&Co papers and cut out some of the roses which are shiny and glittery.... but you may have to zoom a bit to pick up the sparkle! Every edge has been distressed with acrylic paints and Distress Ink, as well as being roughed up with scissor blades of course. I added some DooHickey leaves, a Pink Cat Studio round sentiment and a couple of punched Martha Stewart borders..... so I really stuck to the paper theme completely.
Cardmaking is my passion and I love sharing tips and ideas with other talented crafters. I wake up with ideas buzzing around in my head and go to sleep the same way. My family think I'm bonkers but that's fine by me. I have an ever-growing wishlist, made worse by all the wonderful cards I see when hopping around on a daily basis. I have made some wonderful friends through my hobby, long may it continue!!
