Magnolia DT card

Hi everyone, hope you’re having a good week so far! Another Magnolia DT card from me today using the lovely heart chocolate box, the rose stamp and the gorgeous Dinner Tilda. Everything is water coloured with distress inks apart from the background paper which I made by stamping the rose onto vellum, heat embossing with white embossing powder and then colouring on the reverse side with copic markers (a nice tip from my friend Sandra :)) and it gives a lovely soft look to the roses and quite different from those I’ve stamped and water coloured. Everything has been cut out and arranged over the card blank which was cut with a labels nestie die and some ribbon and lace. I added some pearl pen, stickles and some of the pretty lilac bead strands which Magnolia have just brought out to decorate.

Have a nice evening, thank you as always for the lovely comments you leave and which I appreciate very much, I hope to catch up with my blog hopping when I get all my DT cards done. TFL.

How interesting that you used vellum. It adds a lovely soft touch. I'm sitting here drinking my coffee and just staring at your beautiful purple roses. Your "colouring" of them is more than beautiful. They are outstanding.
