Pink Magnolia...

Happy Wednesday,

How about some almost correct colour flowers today and the Sweet Magnolia stamp to die for from Creative expressions?  Thank you so m,much for being understanding yesterday with Blue Tulips and I hope I'm right today and that you do get Pink Magnolias, whilst I love drawing flowers I'm not good at knowing the colours!


I simply stamped the sweet magnolias stamp to fie for in black ink and coloured its gain with my Graphmaster markets.  Again I failed to write down the colours but I promise I will try harder!  Once coloured I cut it with the matching Cape Verde die this time cutting the outline and the centre.  I cut another version of the die in emerald foundation card but used the centre die panel in the centre to give the looped centre.

I cut into the backing square of bright white using just the detail die from the Cape Verde set twice lopped together so that the filigree section just pops to of each side.

I foam mounted this over a piece of the emerald and used sherbet and emerald foundation card to take a set of frames before adding this to a small 6 x 6" card blank.

I stamped the sentiment and cut t with the pierced tags and added this to the centre using some thin satin ribbon from my stash and a couple of faux quilled flowers I had from another project.

Another stamp to die for tomorrow,

Enjoy...

  12. Hi John. Another beautiful card today, love the colours. As I said yesterday it doesn't matter what colour you do the flowers, it is your card your choice, that is the beauty of crafting, everything is right, and allowed. One of my Mothers favourite expressions about colour was 'it is sky blue pink', think that sums it up. Love Rosemarie X

  16. Hi John. This stamp is a really pretty one and interestingly you only need a very small amount of die cutting to enhance it even more.

  18. Morning John,
    A very pretty card today, wish I could colour like you do.
    As for blue tulips, I searched online yesterday and found there are blue tulips just the same colour as you did them. So you did pick the right colours.
    Look forward to seeing what you have for us tomorrow.

  26. Another great colouring job and very pretty card. I didn't mind the blue tulips, and they didn't look all that "tulip-like" anyway. Because they were wild ones they looked a bit like crocus!

  31. Beautiful John, and what does the colour matter anyway. If you look at todays flowers and yesterdays there is very little to tell them apart if you do not know what they are. They both have 5 petals and most are fairly open. Do them sky blue pink or candy striped, some will like them some wont, but its your creation at the end of the day.

    Hugs

  33. Eh up John
    Yes, there are deep pink magnolias but as Helen said, these flowers look similar to yesterday's so it doesn't really matter using a bit of artistic licence to create such a pretty card.

  37. I am loving these "stamp to die for" cards. Your coloring is fantastic. And yes, there is a pink magnolia. Here in the USA there is a magnolia known as a pink "Tulip tree" or a "saucer Magnolia" called "Jane". There now is a yellow magnolia, not to be confused with the poplar tree bloom. Both the yellow and pink magnolia trees bloom once a year in early Spring.

  38. I love this one John. I just wish my hands were steadier enough to colour those beautiful thin lines. I just know, even if I coped with colouring the flowers, I just know I'd colour outside of the lines!

  51. Good evening John,
    Oh flower, this card is beautiful, i just love everything about this card. It is so good to see how much you are progressing with your colouring each and everytime through a new card. Who says that tulips have to be a certain colour as artistic license says that it can be any colour you perceive. By the way, the way they colour some flower different colours is by putting food colouring in water and letting the flowers drink it up thus changing them to whatever colour the food colouring was, so in actual fact it is totally possible to change white tulips to blue just by this method.
    love and crafty hugs
