ANOTHER MAGNOLIA

Since the challenge theme this month at A Blog Named Hero is "Put a Flower On It", I decided to use alcohol inks to color this lovely new magnolia stamp from Hero Arts.

 

I first created a two pieces of alcohol inked Yupo paper - one in peach and one in green.  Then I embossed the flower in gold and fussy cut.  Did the same with the green - then adhered them together with a nest of gold thread on a vellum circle.  This is one of those cards that will be ready for a sentiment when I need a special card.

Be sure to enter your floral card here.  The challenge runs until May 10th - great prizes to be had - $50 g.c from Hero Arts for the winner and $25 g.c. for a random winner!

Thanks for visiting today and always enjoy reading your kind comments.
