Graciellie Design Inspiration Blog Hop

Hey Bloggers

Its time for the 2nd "New Release" Blog Hop over on
Graciellie Design.
Pop over to the BLOG to start the hop

This month we are using the new release of  digital stamps and papers called Magnolia Dreams. Pop over in the STORE to see all the amazing designs from Graciellie. Gracielle has also teamed with Paper Temptress and released a matching paper pack.

Here is what I have made for this hop.
For this card I started by printing my background sheet. That way had it ready to colour matching for the next step. I then transferred my magnolia flower in to "WORD". (I simply copy and paste). I resized it and copied and pasted that flower 10 times, then printed. I printed onto water colour card stock (140g) as I used my ZIG markers to colour.

As I said, I printed the flower 10 times. This was because I cut out the middle section on 5 of them and used them to decoupage the remaining 5. It gives the flowers so much more dimention on the card.
Once I finished colouring I went over all the flowers with a wink of stella shimmer pen.

Once my flowers was done it was time to print my sentiment. I had the size of my card measured out on a piece of copy paper so when I printed I could see the size of the sentiment versus the card. It took me a few tries to get the size just how I wanted but it was worth it.

And then it was just a matter of popping it all together. A bit of distress ink around the edges of the sentiment and a bit of faux stitching.
