Magnolias - Whimsy New Release

Hi Peeps! Another awesome release is available at the Whimsy store today. I love flowers and I love to create with flower images/dies/stencils and also draw flowers myself. So when I saw this new Magnolia die ....swoooooon! Endless posibilities! <3 Of course I had to use it right away for one of my release creations :-D  Here is what I came up with using the NEW Magnolia A2 die.

I cut out the Magnolia background from kraft cardstock and layered it onto Arches watercolor paper. Then I colored the Magnolias pink using my Altenew watercolors and the background in a pearlescent white (Gansai Tambi).  

I added a strip of vellum paper with the word Birthday stamped and embossed. To complete the sentiment I stamped the words happy and wishes onto black cardstock and heat embossed with white. 

Here is  a closeup where you can see the shimmer from the white paint. It makes the magnolias really stand out and is such a nice contrast to the kraft color. For the flower centers I used golden gilded flakes. 

Here is a link list for all the Whimsy products I used to create this card:


Thanks for stopping by today. 
Make sure to come back tomorrow when I have another new release creation to share.
