Stamp Shoppe DT Card

Happy Wednesday! I thought I would show you my poor wee flowers. These pictures were taken yesterday. Yes, we had snow and lots of it. On Monday it was 19 degrees, sunny and hot. The temperature shifted drastically during the night and when we woke up, it was to this. I don’t ever remember such strange weather. They are predicting 22 degrees on Saturday!

I have a Magnolia card to show you. The 4th challenge this month for The Stamp Shoppe which is to create a card with a special fold. Heidi had also thought it would be fun to try out a highlighted background similar to the one shown in Magnolia Ink 2 magazine. I decided to try out the new technique instead of the fold. This is my interpretation.

I really love this Tilda from the Hoppy Easter collection. I think she can be used for many more occasions than just Easter. I stamped and colored her and then masked her. Then I stamped over her with my SU French Script background stamp and airbrushed using my Copic ABS. I then sponged the sides with Vintage photo distress ink. The sentiment is also from SU and I airbrushed and sponged it also.

Gorgeous card, love the magnolia image you've used and the background stamp looks brilliant. Hope that your poor flowers survive, it must have been such a shock for the poor things, and yourself as well.
