Free As A Magnolia

Thank You Birds wm

With this week’s project I took a very feminine direction. Petal Pink has really caught my eye lately and I’ve been really liking the Magnolia Lane Designer Series Paper so I thought I’d use those along side of Rococo Rose (one of the new In Colours).

The stamp set for this project is the Free As A Bird cling stamp set and I decided to stamp for the most part with Crumb Cake to help balance out all the pink by bringing in the real colours of nature. (You could do this even more by colouring the leaves with either Mint Macaron or Granny Apple Green.) The “thank you” I stamped with Rococo Rose and the flower with Petal Pink.

I then coloured the flowers on the branch using a Blender Pen with the Rococo Rose and the birds with Petal Pink, again using a Blender Pen. (Make sure to give your ink pad a good squeeze before you open it.)

To continue to bring the colours of nature and pink/femininity of the card together I used some Linen Thread and the Rose Metallic Thread to make a couple of bows to the left of the “thank you”.

I also coloured the flower next to the “thank you” with the Wink of Stella Glitter Brush to add a bit of bling to the card. (Unfortunately in the picture the light hit it so that it looks pink/yellow instead of clear/sparkly)
