Just Because – Magnolia


P1070458Welcome again

My card tonight features one of my favourite Altnew stamp sets – Magnolias For Her, which I Distress water coloured before fussy cutting the images.

On the square background panel, I smooshed some Distress Ink and gold ink along with some splatters towards the centre and adding it to the card front. I then added the gold Spellbinders – Captivating Squares die cut on the diagonal.

Using a piece of scrap vellum, I  roughly traced  and cut out the outline of the flower.  After folding is in half I attached it behind the flower spray and added the whole piece to the corner of the die cut.P1070459

To finish, I gold embossed the sentiment from Altnew’s  – Just Because set.

I was pleased with the way it worked out.

I live in sunny Queensland, Australia with my husband and daughter. Since I was a child, I have always loved to create and have enjoyed all kinds of crafts, sewing and painting. China painting helped develop my understanding of colour and design. Over the last few years card making has taken up a major part of my crafting time as I love to play with new techniques and mediums. Since beginning my blog, entering various challenges has encouraged me to grow my skills and creativity.
