magnolia post

I’ve been doing alot of coloring lately.  Mostly using copic markers but a few things with colored pencils as well.  I’ve been using copics most of the time because I have a wide range of colors to choose and I simply love the way they look.  This magnolia postage card was created for today’s featured stamper challenge on SCS.

One of the best things about this image is that is was a free digital image from Digi Design House – which is the digital side of The Angel Company.  Included was the postal image as well as the separate leaf image shown in the corner.    The other best thing is that it is a gorgeous image and colors beautifully with any medium.

I printed the image on copic x-press it cardstock and colored with the following copics:

Boo-B0000,  C7, E37

The background paper is Memory Box Gossamer, the other papers are most likely SU green and gray.  The lace is from my sister-in-laws stash!

Thanks for stopping by today!

What do you do when you want something to jazz up your white card?    Add lace ribbon to the front!

When I finished coloring the main panel of this card, I placed it on a plain white card base and it looked just that – plain.  I thought of embossing the base but wanted to do something different, but still have a subtle look without overwhelming the focal point.  As I looked around my craft room I spied that box of ribbons my sister-in-law gave me last summer  when we visited her.  She has a sewing/craft room in her home filled with all sorts of fabric, buttons, trim, etc.  While visiting her we stopped at their LSS.  I found some paper and was checking out the ribbon section when she told me she has a closet full of ribbon and would love it if I would take it off her hands as she does not really use it.

So, I ended up with a box of ribbon and lace trim!  Back to the card….looking through the box I found several different lace ribbons and chose one to cover the front of the card.  I just ran strips of tape using an ATG gun on the front and placed the lace in rows across it.  It took about 6 rows of lace to cover the front and I really love the look it created!

Thanks Leona for the ribbon and lace!

The stamps are from Mark’s Finest Papers.  The images were stamped on Copic X-press it blending cardstock with Memento Tuxedo black ink.  The following copics were used to color:
