Just Magnolia

Ribbons and bows are the order of the day at Just Magnolia
And before anyone asks - NO - I have not received my Summer Magnolia's - my supa dupa bloggy friend Tara was kind enough to send me a few images to 'Keep me going  till mine arrive although I must admit I've really given up hope of ever seeing them.
I started colouring Tilda with distress inks, forgetting that Tara uses Copics and then wondered why I was getting some bleeding - Copic but not distress friendly paper I presume.  Quickly reverted to Copics but ended up having to cut Tilda out - not the easiest image to cut out I must say!!! I used three layers of ribbon on the left - wide brown, medium width pale pink and depper narrow but the narrower one 'slid' over the medium in the photo so will have to re-photograph it when daylight appears.
 



Image - Magnolia, Tilda from Summer collection
Medium - Copic Markers
Papers - Basic Grey Infuse
Tools - EK Success Scalloped scallop border punch
Emmbellishments - flowers, ribbon & pearls all from stash


I see Mr Blogger has been playing around again. He's taken away my favourite ink colour - brown and changed all the texts grrrr........
Now I've got a white background to my text - why?? I didn't ask for that and I can't seem to get rid of it , is it me or do you all get so cross about things like this!!!
Right that's it - had enough - it will have to stay as it is

gorgeous card heather.. and what a lot of work for this one!! Sorry about the kit not arriving.. but don't give up hope.. my hubby once received a package he'd been waiting on .. 4 mths after it had been mailed out!!!

I don't know why you are having issues with the white background on your txt.. how annoying!!

Hi Heather - a gorgeous card as always. I still look at your creations regularly but to be truthful I ran out of different words to describe how gorgeous they are. Poor you with Summer magnolias - hope you get them eventually. As to the white patch - very strange. Can't help I'm afraid - I've been known to get some weird glitch and start again from scratch. Very annoying.
