Just Magnolia Challenge DT - Mina's Sketch


Wooohooo!! It is Friday! That means the weekend is around the corner and it also means it is time for another Just Magnolia challenge!! This week we have a stunning sketch by the super talented Mina - I'm sure you'll love it, I always love Mina's sketches!! I have made an anniversary card using one of the new stamps from the Wedding collection. Have you seen them? gorgeous is an understatement!! I managed to get three of them even though I don't know anyone who is getting married - crazy right?? but I just couldn't not have some of them! I have used Magnolia paper and Basic Grey Cappella paper and distressed them with walnut stain distress ink. I stamped a flourish from Stempelglede around the edges with weathered wood distress ink and I've stickled them all.

I coloured the image with copics - I just love colouring gold with copics! I added lots of stickles to the diamond for that essential sparkle! I added some gold liquid pearls to the centre of the flowers and have stamped the edges with the Stempelglede flourish stamp. I used a MS corner punch to create the scallop edge around the image.

All of the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts, sprayed with glimmer mist and the branches were punched with a MS punch. The gorgeous ribbons are both from the Hobby House as is the charm.
I used MS heart lace punch on the bottom edge of the Cappella paper. The sentiment is generated on the computer.

Hope you like it and I've inspired you to join us this week at Just Magnolia! The rest of the teams creations are stunning as always - pop over and have a look! Thanks for looking! x
