Hello! {Tuesday Trigger: Magical Magnolias}

Hello, happy people! I decided to play along with the Moxie Fab World Tuesday Trigger - Magical Magnolias challenge! This one seemed like a perfect fit for a couple of things I've been working on lately - using softer colors a bit more and adding more floral images to my cards. I don't own a ton of floral stamps, but I have a few and I am working on getting a few new ones here and there.


SO PRETTY!!! I pulled out this Narcissus stamp set from Stampendous! as it seemed a perfect fit for the inspiration photo. I then used my VersaMagic inks to watercolor the image on a canvas-board paper (SUPER THICK STUFF!). I really like how it turned out!

Hello

I stamped and watercolored the image and then mounted it onto a kraft base. I added a strip of brown suede trim along the side to give the design a bit of contrast and then used a dark brown VersaFine ink for the sentiment. Due to the heavy texture of this paper, the VersaFine works really well because it can get a bit deeper into texture than some other inks.

Hello (detail)

I hope you are having an absolutely delightful weekend! I plan to spend my Saturday crafting away, so that's BOUND to be a good day! YAY!

Have a Happy!
