"Be Merry" - DT Magnolia

This one of the DT Christmas cards I submitted to Magnolia Ink that wasn't chosen. I used a SU sentiment instead of a Magnolia one it didn't qualify. But...I am so Happy to have 3 of my cards published in the Magazine!!

The Stamps I've used on this card are - HV08 Tilda with Heart Ornament (Christmas Collection 2008), TO08 Santa Bench (Santa Collection 2008), SU sentiment.

I've colored the image with Prismacolor pencils (OMS) and Twinkling h20's to deepen the shade and add a little sparkle, SU close to cocoa marker. Delta Acrylic white paint for detail dots. Finished card is 6x6"

For the background around the image...I masked the bench and used a soft brush to add SU barely banana. Tilda is attached with foam popups.

Paper: - Cardstock - Bazill (green, red), Georgia Pacific (white), Basic Grey "Wassail" Ink: - Memento black, SU creamy caramel and barely banana, close to cocoa marker. Accessories: - prima flowers, sparkle brad, lace, Dollarama gold flower, SU gold cord, ribbon and oval punch, Ek success border punch, Martha Stewart fine glitter, stitching.

Have a Great Day Everyone!!..and Thank You for your Lovely Comments!!

These are two Magnolia's I don't have. Even though I have some Magnolia's that have't seen ink yet, after viewing your beautiful work on this card I want these stamps too! It really is an addiction isn't it??
This is just plain beautiful. It is sure to be a keepsake to whom ever you give it too.
