There are certain things a girl should just admit she's no good at. For me it's Magnolia stamps and distressing! Combine them and I'm in all sorts of trouble:
Mina has put together such a great sketch at Just Magnolia that I had to give it a go. This is my fourth attempt with the same papers and stamp, attempts 1-3 are in the B.1.N. File.
Not content with the challenge of Magnolia, I added 'distressing' from A Spoon Full of Sugar and 'blue and brown' from Creative Inspirations.
I should have realised it was going to be one of those days when James asked if I'd seen his wallet this morning. I hadn't. Had I emptied the pockets of his work trousers before I washed them? Ooops! Chip n Pin cash cards still work after a 30 degree wash, even with an extra spin cycle....
I used an Edwin Magnolia stamp and cut him out to sit in the rectangle. The blue patterned paper is DCWV and the browns are Cloud 9. For my distressing (other than making this card in the first place) I embossed some DCWV card with a snowflake embossing folder and sanded it back to show the white core. The snowflake edge is a Fiskars border punch that I bought years ago - who knew they'd become so popular now?
