Midweek Magnolias #137 Midway Reminder

Good morning my dears I'm here to remind you
that you still have time to join us over at 




With our theme of  


"Say it with Flowers" 



I've stamped up the cute Pisces Tilda from the Zodiac 2014 collection and coloured her 
with Copic markers and Derwent soft pencil, addinga little glamour dust
 to the pearls in her hair and to the bubbles around her. 



This is an 8x8 canvas which I gesso'd and then used my Tim
Holts distress inks on the corners and sides.  I also used quite a few elements
 from the contents of my mixed media Craft Box.  Prima papers, flowers, rope, 
charms and added some of my own doilies, shells, netting etc. 
 This now hangs pride of placein my bathroom.




I do hope you will pop over and join in our challenge, 
you can find the current one HERE 


Have a fab day!!

Hugs

Saying it with Flowers!!!



Hello my dears,  I'm here to share my latest card using lots of
pretty elements from The Craft Box.  This is the April
box and it came with lots of pretty Prima papers, flowers, seashells, gems, chipboard shapes and some gorgeous lace appliqué.



I heat embossed shabby chic antique rose frantage the white paper leaves and used just thick white frantage powder to the chipboard element which I cut in half and used as a flourish.



The cutest little iridescent glass seashells are peeking out 
in various places and the lace appliqué was cut in half to 
give a little more dimension to the card. 
 I'm really quite pleased with the end results.  

Thank you so much for popping in to visit.

Wishing you all a wonderful day.
