Sketch With “Just Magnolia”

I’ve been trying to use stuff from my stash, that I’ve had for ages, and never or hardly ever used.  I figure it’s a good way to make room for more.  You know a girl can never have too much stuff!  I’m using another Magnolia stamp, which I have had for a couple of years now.  I think I might have used her one other time.


I’ve colored the image with Copics in my favourite color combo of purple and green.  The designer paper is from the Kaiser Craft Lilac Avenue Collection.  The ribbon and lace are also from my stash that’s been hanging around for ages.  I made the rolled roses with an MFT die.  I’ve add some glitter to her wings using a Sakura Glitter pen, but unfortunately you can’t see it in the picture.

Have a great week!

  13. When I was in the third grade my teacher picked me to decide the colors of her room and I couldn't help but pink purple and green! The entire room was covered in it and to this day I won't forget the happy and inviting feeling of that little classroom. Just as is your card, so happy and inviting and wonderful on the eyes. :) Love your work and another pretty creation. YEAH you for using scraps....we must make room for more stuff...I do believe it's mandatory.
