Magnolia Fairytale - EAC No. 113

Another week and another card, this time using a Magnolia stamp from the Spring Stamp Club pack. It's the first time of using this image as I had put her in a drawer and forgot about her, in fact I don't think I have inked up any from the set until now.
This week's card is for the Everybody Art Challenge Blog, the theme is "Blue, Green & Brown".

I have used some gorgeous papers from the Basic Grey Cappella Pad together with green Bazzill card to layer with. I am getting a little adventurous with my sewing machine and have moved on from a simple straight stitch to a zig zag and it went without a hitch! Which is more than I can say about my disastrous colouring of the image. I thought I would try distress inks again but I find it so difficult to get a smooth colour. Copics are definitely easier for me.

To finish the card I have used blue Organza Ribbon, blue gems, a flower from Wild Orchid Crafts, a Martha Stewart punch and finally the sentiment from Clear Dollar Stamps. Oh and stickles glitter glue to add a bit of sparkle.

I have a week off of work this week so am hoping to get a day making cards although the time is supposed to be spent continuing with house renovations. Maybe my other half with take pity on me later in the week! Fingers crossed.

Have a great week and thanks for looking.
