My first Magnolia stamp and Nesties!

I´ve been admiring all lovely cards with Magnolia stamps and Nesties for a time now. So I thought that why not try them out. I was very happy for my purchase, but when I started the colouring it reminded me so much of those colouring books I used to get as a child. Always very cute images, but I´m not quite sure if that´s my cup of tea. I might give my new stamp another go, but it´s a bit sad to find out that maybe these adorable images aren´t for me. Ah well, there are like zillions of other stamps, so I´m not that unhappy! And I can always find a new owner to my stamp if needed. And I do like my Nesties, I´m very happy for them.

This card works for Just Magnolias fab sketch and for Cupcake Craft Challenges who wants to see some butterflies and blossom.

Papers: Patterned papers are Panduro and all others are ordinary crafting papers.

Stamp and ink: Magnolia, Inkido, Memories and Rangers DistressInks.

Colouring: Derwent watercolour pens

Misc: Ribbon is Magenta, gems are from Panduro, oval scalloped dies from Nestabilities, the sentiment is from my stash
