Magnolias


Popping in quickly to show you a card inspired by the Altenew April Inspiration Challenge.

I heat embossed the flowers and sentiment in Altenew platinum embossing powder and water-coloured. Used the sprays to make a little background.

Thanks so much for looking!

Sue, this is just beautiful. Your water coloring is so lovely. I've never had good luck with sprays but yours is perfect. Just the right amount and such a light touch.

I love the colors of magnolias, Sue! They're so beautiful and the platinum heat-embossed outline goes so well with them. The spatters in the background add interest and warmth to the card. Hideko xx
