Magnolia Love

Hello there! It's Magnolia season in Australia and although we don't have one, there are lots in our street, which makes me very happy:)

I made a card today, inspired by a new challenge and an old challenge...

I  created a matte by cutting a panel slightly smaller than the card base and die-cutting the side for some texture. I die-cut 2 flowers, keeping the pieces in for one and colouring with a damp brush and Zig Markers. The stem is coloured with sparkly silver Wink of Luna and I use this for the sentiment too. When the flower was dry, I highlighted the petals with clear Wink of Stellar.

Dies:- Alexandra Renke 'Two Magnolias'; Memory Box 'Pietra Tile'
Stamp: Penny Black 'Banner Sentiments'.


  1. Your magnolia is gorgeous, Jenny, and the die cut background is perfect to show it off!
