First Magnolia!


Oh Dear! I think I could fall in love with these Magnolia stamps! They are so easy to work with - the images are perfect and colouring them is great fun! The paper on this card is from Basic Grey Two Scoops. The frame is cut from mount board (thin chipboard). The stamp is coloured with.. yeah, you guessed.. watercolour pencils! She is cute isn't she??

I'm being very naughty crafting tonight... I should be studying... just have no self discipline!! I'm sure when I'm sitting my exam in two weeks time I will feel comforted by the fact that I made this card! Perhaps it should have been a good luck one! I need all the help I can get!
