Magnolia singing in the rain!


I don't know that she is actually singing, but she is certainly having fun! I know I had fun working with her today. I wasn't sure about the mushrooms, and himmed and hawed over it for the longest time. I finally decided in favour of them for the burst of color that they give. After I had permanently adhered them I wasn't sure I had made the right choice. It's times like this that a neighbor stamper would be really handy.
recipe: Magnolia girl, fence, clouds, mushroom
Paper: Soft Sky, Cranberry, unknown orangy yellow kinda peachy, K and Company paper from large box purchased at Cosco, Stampers Select White
Ink: Stewart Superior Hybrid black, Ranger Distress in Broken China, Tea dye and Marigold
Other: Copic Markers, May Art ribbon, White Gel Pen, Pop up dots, Crystal effects, Copic multi liner pen, Sewing machine, Stickles in waterfall, Nestability in plain square.
This was a fun little project. I started by stamping her on stamper select and coloring her with Copic Markers. I cut her out and set her aside. Next I stamped her again on Stamper Select and then stamped the fence over her. I sketched out the grass and puddle. I colored it in, sponging the sky with Distress ink in China. Image was cut with Nestability and embossed. Next the girl was adhered over the girl stamped out over the fence ( if that makes sense). Crystal effects was added to the puddle, splash on hand and the rain drops. DP was then put together and stitched on machine. The rest of the card was put together as seen.
Thanks so much for taking the time to visit, and have a great tomorrow.
hugs
Sophie

This is just adorable - I love the scene you've created. I wouldn't have realized you doodled in the puddle & grass if I hadn't read your post - gorgeous work! And I think the mushroom was a good choice, and love how you cut out the clouds. So many details I love in this card!!!

All the little extra stamps are what pulls this card together. That fence looks so much cuter when used in a scene - as do the clouds!

Tell me, how did you do the grass underneath the fence? Is it a magnolia stamp? I have to get it!!! Have a great weekend!!
