Magnolia Mood for Freshly Made Sketches 641

Fun Friday for me is to play with a challenge, so for inspiration I looked no further than the latest offering from Freshly Made Sketches.

I'm still enjoying the Magnolia Mood bundle and this sketch drew me to it again.

I stamped, coloured and diecut out the large magnolia image and one of the smaller conebud images. They are coloured with Stampin' Blends in Old Olive, Fresh Freesia and Highland Heather with a touch of Daffodil Delight. I added in some extra die cut leaves to fill out the arrangement.

I masked off a 2cm deep section of the card base and then sponged with Daffodil Delight ink. Hard to see in the picture is the fine splattering of Wink of Stella I added at this point. Once the mask was removed there was a line of clear space. So then I had to be brave and stamp the sentiment directly onto the base!

After mounting onto a Fresh Freesia card base, I added in a trio of gems from the Purple Fine Shimmer Gem  pack to finish off. Got to have a little bling, right?

Update: Delighted to be named a Perfect Princess at Freshly Made Sketches.

  1. Beautiful flower! Love the yellow splash behind it! Glad you joined us at FMS!

  2. The magnolia in and of itself is beautiful Jan, but the pop of yellow and the way you masked the sentiment is so effective and makes this such an eye-catching card. Fabulous!

  3. This card is so pretty Jan! I just love those beautiful purples flowers and that bright, yellow background! So lovely! Thanks for joining us this week at Freshly Made Sketches!

  4. Love the pop you get from the purple against the yellow. Lovely card! So glad you joined us this week at FMS!
