Just Magnolia Challenge.

Week 32 is Masking - using at least 1 magnolia image - go to the blog here for all details and of course all the fab cards.

I just admire all the magnolia cards everyone else does and always think how I would love to make cards like that. Well practice makes perfect and of course I like to keep practicing. So here is my attempt at masking. I have used distressing inks, promarkers and brush markers to colour in the image - hopefully Santa Clause will bring me a copic or two!!!

I have put some punched leaves falling out from the trees to give a more wintery image, but don't think I've quite got the hang of grass or grounding my image - any hints would be gratefully received.

I didn't want to use any papers on this card so have used some sizzlit flourishes that have been spritzed with cosmic shimmer to give a "boarder".

Also need to brush up on how to get the perfect picture!!! Anyhow, thanks for looking.

I don't know how I've managed to blog so many cards this week, perhaps it is that the kids are entertaining themselves. Here's my daughter crafting and pushing me out of my craftspace!!

She's only 2 3/4 but loves crafting - and pinching all my bits!!
