Mondo Magnolia

Hello there, this Mondo Magnolia stamp set from Ellen Hutson arrived two days ago. I thought the magnolia was just so pretty, I just had to have a quick play with it straight away. I did Google magnolia's as I knew most were white. I did find that they come in pink too but went with a peach colour for my card today.

I started off by taking a panel of white cardstock and stamping the magnolia image from the set on to it, slightly overlapping on the top, right edge. I also stamped the hello form the set in the bottom left. Both of these were stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I coloured in the flower using Copic Markers, adding some dots, inspired by Jennifer McGuire's latest video. I have used dots many times as backgrounds/grounding but never to colour an actual image. I do like the look!
The panel was adhered to an A2 PTI Melon Berry card base with foam tape. I added it towards the bottom right to give a bit of interest in the top left. I added a little clear Wink of Stella to the centre of the flower/stamens and then added a tiny pearl to finish.
Here are the links to what I have used on the card. Please click the picture to be taken to where I purchased it.

COPIC MARKERS: Magnolia - YR0000, YR000, YR00, YR01. Outside shadow - B0000, B000, B00.
