Just Magnolia Week 38



Yay, I finally got a card made!! It took me nearly 3 days of going back and forth to it while I was nursing a burned hand and doing a million other things but I got it finished eventually, lol.

There is a wonderful sketch by Mina over on Just Magnolia this week. I used Edwin from the Winter Magnolia Kit and coloured him with both copic markers and distress inks and then added Frosted Lace stickles to his wings. I cut him out and mounted him on an oval chipboard that I had painted with crackle paint. I rubbed antique linen ink into the oval to make the cracks more visable. I then added some white ribbon and secured it with a snowflake brad. I finished the oval off by adding Picket Fence distress stickles.



My papers are Figgy Pudding, which are one of my all time favourite Christmas paper collections. I distressed them with the Heidi Swapp edge distresser and then edged them with Vintage Photo. I also distressed the white flower with Pine Needles and added a button, which I had theaded with scrappers floss, to the centre of the flower.. then I added 4 self adhesive vellum flowers to complete the sketch.

I am also entering this into Crafty Creations Challenge as their challenge this week has NO RULES. Just create something and share it with them. Great challenge for such a busy time :)
