Happy first of May! A new month means a new Magnolia-Licious May Sketch. Each month a member of the design team comes up with a sketch for you to play with. This month's fabulous sketch by Sharon Caudle is very simple, so can fit so many different kinds of looks.
I had in mind a super girly look, so softened up the geometric angles with leaves and flowers. The result is a cleaner, simple look that remains soft and feminine.
I stamped the Autumn Frame stamp by Magnolia onto Papertrey's Linen Vellum cardstock, then colored it with the Copics you see above, and added Liquid Pearl rosettes.
Tilda the Ballet Princess (from the Pink Collection, proceeds of which benefits Breast Cancer charitable causes) was colored with Copics and accented with Fruit Punch Stickles, then popped up onto the frame with foam dimensionals.
I also created my own embellishments using a Stampin' Up! Boho Blossoms punch, Little Leaves die cut and more rosettes. If you would like to make your own rosettes, my mini tutorial can be found here.
I added more Liquid Pearls and a handmade flower with rosette. The pearlized pink cardstock base is Bazzill Bling.
You can see other Design Team member cards, as well as those of our group members in the Magnolia-Licious Card Gallery. If you would like your card to be included in the gallery please send your picture to Diana Crick at ladydian(at)shaw.ca. Come on and play, I would love to see your work!
