The challenge at Magnolia Vs Stampavie this week is 'Get The Feeling'. The idea is to get as much texture going on in your work as possible. I've used a Sarah Kay image coloured with water colour pencils. I added a little bit of red and gold Stickles to the tree and then stippled brown ink round the image. All papers Basic Grey granola. Put brown BG paper through the Cuttlebug to emboss with a Christmas ef, then sanded and added some gold ink. Magnolia circle Christmas sentiment stamped and embossed in black and layered. Lastly, I added a red Prima flower with a snowflake brad and the word 'SNOW' in chipboard. I did some faux stitching on the backing paper.
I'm a 44 year old mum of 2, a daughter of 19 and a son of 8. I haven't worked since having my daughter as I became ill and was diagnosed with lupus 14 years ago. I wanted a hobby that would take my mind off everything, so crafting was suggested to me. I started in March/April 2008 and have been having fun learning lots of techniques ever since.
