Magnolia Advent Calendar




Hi everybody!

Thanks for dropping by my blog to celebrate the 2nd day for Magnolia's advent calendar. Magnolia lovers for years know that this is the most wonderful month of the year with 31 days of wonderful giveaways. You could be one of the lucky ones :)

And here are my cards for this giveaway..



It's something very quick and easy especially this holiday season when we have to cook up a lot of cards to send out to loved ones.




I find that watercolors are much more easier to work with especially with coloring multiple images. They blend much more easier and faster that Distress Inks.



I used Koi Watercolors Field Sketch Box (24 colors)



To get the marbling effect, I saturated the background with color carefully covering up the stamped image. Then I sprayed it crazy with a lot of water and blotted it with a paper towel.




Add interest to the card by adding dots of Liquid Pearl. It also makes the image look 3d :)

For a chance to win a surprise package for today's advent calendar, just leave a comment in this post. 

Good luck everybody and have a great week ahead :)

  10. Love it so much!!! I will look out for your colouring medium, because i'm not satisfied about distress ink. They do not ceep the original colour after a while. Love the way how you made the background. I still need a lot off cards, so will keep this in my mind. Thanks for the inspiration! Have a nice day, hugs Lotte
