Magnolia DT

I saw this card on Anita's Blog, and was totally blown away!! I wanted so much to try something like it. I did not quite succeed, but still like it anyhow. Eventually I will get it down pat!
recipe:
stamps: Magnolia, SU sentiment
Ink: Versamark, Stewart Superior Burnt Umber
Paper: Bazzill, DP from Magnolia's shop, Fabriano, Vellum CS

Other: Watercolor pencils, Radiant Pearls, Twinkling H2O's, ATC glitter, Spica Glitter pen, May Art ribbon, Nestability circle.
to start, I layered my DP on my Brown CS and cut a circle with the nestability. Then I placed it on the pink CS and drew in the circle and then cut that out with the nestability. I stamped all the images and colored them in. For a fantastic tutorial on coloring with watercolor pencils and Twinkling H2O's, check out Katharina's Blog tutorial. Next I stamped the girl in the centre of the piece of vellum CS ( using Versamark) and embossed her with SU glitter embossing pwd. Then I placed the vellum between the brown and pink CS and adhered it. The circle colored girl was placed below. Flowers and sentiment were adhered to frame it and little spirals of paper were added here and there. Hole was punched through vellum and ribbon run through and tied, and glitter was added to the centre of the apple blossoms.
Have a great day,
Hugs,
Sophie
