Your Wedding DT for Swedish House Crafts

Hi everyone I'm here today with a wedding card using 2 Magnolia images, one is the main image & the other is hidden somewhere ;-)
Quite a bit of colouring on this card but I really enjoyed making it,

The flower I made myself with foamiran, if you look closely behind that you can just see the Roxxtamps Heart Wreath die cut out twice, once in white cardstock & once in pink vellum.

The flower that is coming down from the foamiran flower is a die form the last Magnolia Doohickey Collection Volume 18. I cut it out in watercolour paper then painted it using distress ink refills.

I added corrugated cardboard painted with white gesso to add texture & depth to the card.
The bow is made with a Magnolia Doohickey die that you can pre-order from Swdish House Crafts. It was cut out in the same Maja Design paper as the card.
Down the centre I added another Magnolia die called the Recipe Card & layered it up on top of the corrugated cardboard.

The gorgeous Magnolia stamp is called Mr & Mrs Magnolia from the You're INvited Collection. I stamped onto watercolour paper using the fabulous Tim Holtz stamping platform & coloured them with distress ink refills.....I have a few stamping platforms & I have to say my absolute favourite is the Tim Holtz one, love the size & especially love the sturdiness & quality of it.

Here is the image that was hidden. I used one of the Magnolia mini stamps to co-ordinate with the main image, stamped & coloured it with distress ink refills & then cut it out using a Magnolia Tag die. Its another fabulous way of using those mini stamps. Though this was not originally my idea, I saw it a long time ago from a very talented crafter whose colouring I absolutely adore.......I'm hoping to be like her when I grow up lol. Link to her blog is right here.

For the background colour I used a few different colours to get a sunset sort of colour. To do the backgrounds I use the Watervalve brushes as I find they are fab & quick for colouring the background. I dont fill mine with water I use my water bucket just like I do when Im using my sable brushes.

Here you can where the tag goes & I added waxed cord in white & in pink & some white seam binding & a gorgeous bit of bling to the centre.
The 'Love' metal clip thingy is form my stash as is the foamiran.
I have used 1 sheet of Maja Design Vintage Spring Basics, I've used both sides & its the '7th May' favourite sheet of the whole collection......need get more I think lol.

Thats it from me, thank you for stopping by. Take care.
Lotsa hugs Vicky xxx
