My first Magnolia

Double challenge, for
C.R.A.F.T. Challenge #5

First off, I used the sketch from C.R.A.F.T. Challenge blog - I really liked this one, as I finally "dared" to use my Basic Gray papers, as the backing used so much of it. The image is from a great lady, Mina - she sent me a pile load of images! I colored her with watercolor pencils and Distress Inks.

I am also going to try for a DT position! I know, silly me, been around for such a short time - but it is something amazing! Roses on Paper challenge blog has a DT call for Belles 'n Whistles - a new store opening in July with Elisabeth Bell's stamp designs!

One of the requirements is to participate in one of Roses on Paper challenges, and challenge 14 in their blog is "Flowers" and "Combined challenge".

Papers: Basic Gray Porcelain, Brown card stock
Images: Magnolia, Sugar Nellie "So sweet"-circle stamp
Ink: Distress Ink Fired Brick
Coloring: Distress Inks, watercolor pencils
Other: flowers, Basic Gray half pearls, pink ribbon
