Remarkable You - Magnolia Blossoms

Sunday, June 14, 2015

Yesterday I showed you card using the Calla Lilies of the "Remarkable You" stamp set. Today I using the Magnolia blossom from the set. I love Magnolia trees, and we have a lot of them here in Victoria, BC.

Wanting to try something a little different, I created a tri-fold card, and painted on Crumb Cake cardstock!


I masked and stamped, and then I white-washed all the leaves and blossoms. Letting it dry, I later used a combination of water colouring and dry brush strokes.

You can't tell in most of the photos that upon completion I used a dry brush to lightly spread a little Dazzling Details all over.





 When the card is open, it looks like...



This is what it looks like from the back,

Still trying to get the glitter to show, and the following closeup has a little that came out in the photo.



I promise you, a thin layer really is all over the front giving it a shimmery look.

Well, that's it for the Magnolia this time. There's one more flower in this set to use; the Water Lily. So look for that next.

As usual, the supplies used in the making of this card can be found below. Thank you for stopping by!

Happy stamping!

You are right, you are remarkable! This card is gorgeous!

Sabrina, I agree with Debe that "you are remarkable". I had chalked this stamp set up to being "just another flower set", until I saw your remarkable (no pun intended) creation. I live in Abbotsford, and our Magnolias were so beautiful this year..........actually outstanding, so your card was a wonderful reminder. Thanks for sharing your awesome card and creative skills.
