Flyin' Away!!


Thanks so much to everyone for their congratulations on my new DT news!! It's very exciting and I'm so thrilled that I have my 'cyber-friends' to share it with!! You ladies are the best!!

Since I've been getting some more questions about the Magnolia stamps, I thought I'd post another one today!! This one is using one I call, Leafy Magnolia! I don't know what he's really called.....because it's in Swedish, but I think it's close enough!! Doesn't he just look so sweet flying by on his giant leaf??

I stamped him in Archival Versafine Black Onyx ink on Fabriano watercolour paper and used a combination of inks and Aquapainter and SU markers to colour him in. The base is a Chocolate Chip square and I used some of my Basic Grey Figgy Pudding papers. I used Soft Sky and more Chocolate Chip to layer and I made the layers all a little cockeyed to add visual interest. I used some frosted brads from Prima along with some Prima flowers and an SU button with brown linen thread. The two strips of fancy ribbon are both from a package by Making Memories called Boho Chic Trim - Lauren. I especially love the crocheted trim!! Then of course I added some Stardust Stickles to his little wings and the pom pom on his hat!!

Again, people have been asking where I got my Magnolia stamps and as I have mentioned in previous posts, they are very difficult to come by. But I have a friend named Phebe who DOES have them and she has a brick and mortar store but not an online store. But she does take email or phone orders, so if you would like her email address, I can give it to you. Just send me a quick email and I will forward it to you!!

Well, today I am off to do some training at another library, so no time for stamping until tonight!! But I'll be thinkin' about it while I'm there.....don't tell anyone!! When I'm sitting in the boardroom with a thoughtful look on my face, they won't know it, but I'll be busy thinkin' about colour combinations and layouts!! *snicker* Have a great day!!!

P.S. Don't forget to join in Kimmie's Challenge #6!!!
