Magnolia



Hi All,
Here is another Magnolia card. This is my first attempt with my new copic markers. I am not sure I liked how it turned out. I had alot of bleeding of the markers into areas I didn't want. Also, if anyone has an idea to the following I would greatly appreciate it. When using the copics it seemed the ink would all of a sudden just flow out of the tip. Is there something I am doing wrong? Thanks for any advice for coloring with these.

Krista

Tilda giggling, I think this stamp is one of my new favorite ones. There are so many possibilities with it. I colored her with my water-color pencils, blended and then cut her out. I placed her on the bench. I layered a few different color cardstocks behind her and placed a ribbon on the card. I am stuck on the snowflakes, probably because we got close to 2 feet of snow over the weekend. Till later hope you enjoy.

Hi All,
I got this stamp from a friend the other day, so I thought I would give it a try. I used a green cardstock, then layered some designer paper on it that appears to look like wood. I added some prima flowers and a little wire to break it up a tad. I am not sure I like the way it turned out, have some mixed feelings on this one. Till later.
