Not Just Magnolia....

So it's August and it's raining, which means I had a little time to just create... can't possibly get the washing dry in this weather. I wanted to make a card and couldn't decide on just one challenge, so I have combined quite a few...

Let me explain...

Just Magnolia # 16 - distressing
Cuttlebug #42 - Gate fold
Colour Create - Pink, Orange and Green
All combined using the fabulous sketch by Laura at 2S4Y


Phew quite a combo, I started with my gate fold for the cuttlebug challenge I think this is my first time entering I just haven't managed before. I decided to turn it on it's side and make an envelope card. I have die cut lots of hearts in the same base card and adhered to create faux embossing.
Following Laura's sketch the central strip across the middle I have embossed whitewash orange based core'dinations and sanded to bring the colour through. The edges have been distressed, using the same whitewash I have created scallop edging with apron lace punch and some faux stitching using ruler and pokey tool.
This is also my first entry for the Just Magnolia challenge and I went for a black and white photo effect and love it when they pick up one colour and enhance it on a B&W. So I have coloured the rose (it is pink IRL) and glittered and covered with my sakura clear, so that it wouldn't pick up the colour from my distress inks.
I have distressed and stamped on the inside the colours pink, orange and green which follows the challenge at colour create. Wow are you still following? Click on the pictures for close up but please forgive the terrible picture quality the daylight disappeared too quickly today.





Supplies: Patterned Paper: BG: sugared; Core'dinations: Whitewash; PM: textured card; Stamps: Magnoila: Tilda with Rose; Hero Arts: sentiment; Ink: Memento: Black; colourbox; Ranger: distress inks; copics; spica; Sakura: clear; Die's: Nestabilities: ovals; label1; Sizzix: flourish(hearts); Cutb'g: Embossing folder; Fiskars: Apron Lace; Other: Tims ruler; piercing tool; blending applicator; edge distresser; 3D foam;


Thanks for stopping by HuGs Kim x
