Just Magnolia - A sketch


Good morning, ah it is good to be back in my craft room although I am missing the gorgeous weather I had on holiday. I couldn't believe my luck when the postie brought me my new Magnolia stamps from the summer kit just in time for me to make this weeks card on Just Magnolia - how lucky was that!
 The stamps all have a nautical.sea theme to them and I couldn't resist this super sweet mermaid Tilda which you can pre order from Simon Says Stamp I have used Magnolia papers too and they seemed to be perfect with lots of bubbles on them just like in the image.The aqua paper is actually christmas paper but why wait for christmas when you can use it now, lol.


 I used my clear spica pen over the scales and bubbles for a lovely shimmery appearance - it looks so pretty in real life.


I am also going to enter my card for the following challenges ...

Creative Card Crew - Die Cuts
Stampavie & More - Anything goes
Scrappy Frogs - Girly Girl
