Some more Magnolia

Hi there,

After my earlier card I returned my books to the library - I love the feel of a hard-backed book. I've gotten over the need to own them -- I simply don't have the room to store them.

Of course I left my craft desk a mess, so before cleaning up, I stamped and heat embossed a few more of those Altenew Magnolias.  I am hoarding my bristol paper since I have a long month to go before I can buy any more crafty supplies.  I found a pad of Artist's Loft mixed media paper and used that.  The Zig markers worked pretty well on that paper. I colored the marker on and blended with a water brush after heat embossing the image.

I made 4 cards and they'll do for 4 different challenges.  So lots of photos to come.

For Less is More - Dry Embossing I made this card:

For Addicted to Stamps and More Anything Goes, I am submitting this card:

For Inspired by all the Little Things I am submitting this card:  I was inspired by the pink flowers and the touches of aqua/blue in the inspiration photo.

For the City Crafter Challenge Blog - Die Cuts, I am submitting this version:

Thanks so much for stopping by!
