Just Magnolias - Dawny's Sketch!

Friday! Just Magnolia's Day! Man... it has been a long week, very tired! Birthing babies, work, rain... whew! But it is Just Magnolia's Day so all is happy and good ;0)

I dug really deep into my Magnolia box! Found a couple of very sad images - you see they have never had ink on them! So I pair Edwin and Tilda up and used a background stamp for a scene, and it made me feel better as three stamps were used for this one!
After masking off and stamping all three stamps I colored with my Copics and high lighted with white gel pen. I wanted it to have a more vintage feel so I then inked the edges and across the entire image with Old Paper Distressing Inks. Really gives an older feel and mutes the colors.
Now the card - The base is kraft card stock, I so need to find more of this as I am running so low on my 12x12! The pattern papers, oh so yummy - You are seeing this Paper Studio Maribelle stack! I knew I had to have this as soon as I saw it! Now if I could just get these papers in wall paper or fabric for my Living Room! So I used the sketch, and lots of the pattern papers, sewed everything together. The sentiment is from Just Rite - you will be seeing these on my cards for a while as I got a couple of sets at the convention last week... Just loved the simple sentiments, and they are the perfect size to cut with my circle Nesties.

My flowers - These were white and bright red Mulberry Roses, So not the right colors for this card! So I dug out my Tattered Angels Chocolate Covered Cherries glimmer mist, and well.. antiqued them up a bit! They actually have more of a sparkle to them in person - here they seem to have more of a well... dead look! Why is it so hard to capture the real thing sometimes? Sigh... the leaves are Martha Stewart branch punches.

Now you hop on over to Just Magnolias, grab the sketch and see the other DT cards, then join us for a chance at another awesome prize!

Have a wonderful Friday and see you tomorrow for some Animal Crackers!

Another beautiful card. I must invest in some glimmer mist.I really like those papers and roases.
I got a giggle out of the way they are carrying there flowers/veggies. I do that. Always end up picking things to bring in when I have not taken a bag or basket with me. TGIF, hugs...
