Sending you a Great Big Hug!!...Magnolia

I can't believe it's Friday already!!....I have company coming for the weekend so this post may seem a little short.

Have you checked out the Little Stamp Shoppe lately?.....Heidi has ordered some of the Fabulous recent "Lazy Summer Days Collection". Right now it says Out of Stock when you view what she has ordered but they should be available soon.

The Cute Magnolia stamps I have used on this card are CC09 Spring Tilda, CCo9 Watercan and C09 Dot Butterflies all from the "Chasing Butterflies Collection" ........The "Watercan" and "Spring Tilda" are both available at "the little Stamp Shoppe" The sentiment I've used is part of a stamp set I won over a year ago....and is created by Aud

The Fabulous sketch I've used for this card is the recent SC 237 at "Splitcoaststampers"

I have colored the images with copics for base....prismacolor pencils and a bit of h20's to deepen the shade. I know I am a broken record but...*please remember to only use copics under prismacolor pencils .....never on top or your copic tips may be ruined!*

Tilda is cut out and set on the water can with foam stickies for dimension.....The previous butterfly on the water can is replaced with one of the small Dot Butterflies and is partially glued down so the wings stay up. There is glitter on the flowers, leaves, Tilda's pony tail holders and the edge of the butterfly...but I couldn't capture it in the photo.

I've used nesties for the image...and the watering can is "out of the box" so to speak to keep the image in the center.

Ink- memento black, bashful blue, certainly celery

Paper - Georgia Pacific whit, Bazill CS, Kraft, PP from Magnolia ...Bloom & Grow I believe.

Accessories - flowers, nesties, brad (dollar store), jute webbing on the pink layer (not quite sure what it is called), drywall netting, jute string, stitching, glitter

Have a Wonderful Weekend Everyone!...and Thank you so much for your Lovely comments!!!

**Just editing to add a few great tutorials by some very Talented ladies on using your nesties with the out of box technique** ....
