Magnolia scene

Katharina has a new challenge on her blog, this time she asked us to create a 'scene' card!
She is very generously offering a gorgeous High Hopes stamp which you can see in her post here


I used this very cute Martha sitting, an image sent by a friend. Thank you so much!
All the stamps I used in this scene are from Magnolia. I masked the flowers and painted the grass in then chalked the sky around a cloud stencil. All the other stamped images were cut out and added afterwards.
I am so glad Katharina set this challenge as I have been meaning to do a scene for a while but never quite got around to it. I love the effect! My youngest daughter has requested this card for her birthday!
Supplies: Cardstock ~ White, olive, white creative smooth
DP ~ Laura Ashley 'contemporary'
Stamps ~ Magnolia ' Martha', 'Goblin stump', 'Goblin fungi', 'signpost', 'birdhouse', 'leaves', don't know the name of the pretty flowers as I think they were sent by mistake, I ordered some different flowers and got these! Love them so not complaining!
Embellishments ~ Flower ~ Flora Doodles

Turid Mari said...

Hi Deb :)
Thank you for the nice comment on my blog :)
You make beatuiful cards!! Aspecially like this one, great combination of colors.
I think that since you've used only three colors it makes your card look calm despite the fact that you've used alot of different stamps! Love it!! The little bird looks so cute on top of its house:)

Hugs from Turid.
