Vintage Magnolia



This is for:-
1. Just Magnolia - week 43 - sketch
2. Simon Says Stamp - Vintage with flowers
3. Sophisti-cats - challenge 23 - Embossing wet or dry
4. Saturday Spotlight - "Doing the mess around"

5. C.R.A.F.T. - challenge 39 - Ribbons and Sparkle

6. Cute Card Thursday - challenge 101 - Ribbon

I really enjoyed making this card, I distressed around the edges of the image then stamped some flourishes and then glittered some flourishes every so often. Then I distressed around the edges of the papers and flowers. The flowers have also been stamped with versamark using a flourish stamp then embossed with a clear embossing powder, but the photo doesn't pick it up too well.

The sketch is fabulous and I will use it again and it's from Just Magnolia. The theme for Simon Says Stamp is Vintage with Flowers. Sophisti-cats want us to use Embossing, it can be wet or dry, I have done wet as I've embossed flourishes onto my flowers with clear embossing powder, to give them a nice shine . It's not showing up too well though, we just don't have any light here at the moment its so dull and rainy. Distressing is this weeks theme over at Saturday Spotlight and all my papers and flowers have been distressed. C.R.A.F.T. want to see Ribbons and sparkle and my ribbon is some lovely white organza and my sparkle is around the outside of the image. Cute Card Thursday want you to use ribbon this week.

Happy crafting
Tracy x
