Stately Magnolias

Hello! Here is that project I promised you. I used the stunning magnolia blossom from Melanie's new Stately Flowers 3 stamp set.


I started colored the center with E15.

Then filled in with Y23.

On the petals, I began shading with Y23.

Then added E00.

Added BV000.

Then BV11.

On the leaves, I started with YG23.

Added G03.

Then shaded with YG93 and W3. After coloring, I cut out the flower.

I cut piece of Pure Luxury White card stock with Spellbinders Lacey Circle Die Template and sponged Mememento Grape Jelly ink while it was still in the die template. I adhered the flower to the circle with Pop Dots and adhered both to the Pure Luxury Creme De Menthe card base. I added some of the new Pure Luxury Wisteria Lane pattern paper to the top, using Spellbinders Classic Scallop Edgeabilities to cut the bottom piece. After stamping the sentiment, I highlighted it with score lines made with my Score-Buddy.

Thanks for all the get well wishes. Have a great day!
