My very first Magnolia!

Hello, everyone!! We spent the day yesterday at the beach!!! I haven't been to a beach in ages, & I remembered why when a big ole fish came floating by me, belly up. Ewwwwww!!! But I went with a friend I hadn't seen in AGES, & all our kids had lots of fun so it was worth it. Today, though, we are nursing some sunburns!

I've been eyeing up the Magnolias for quite a while. I can't afford them right now, so I asked for them on the Wish RAK forum. It's a great place on SCS where you can ask for images, ribbon, cardstock.....anything that can be sent through the mail. In return, you send images, ribbon, cardstock, etc that YOU have to others who wish for them. It's a great place of sharing, & I've been able to acquire quite a few things I wouldn't normally be able to have!! So here is my first attempt at one of the cutie-pie Magnolia girls:


I used the Color Challenge from SCS yesterday ~ Wild Wasabi, So Saffron & Almost Amethyst. I got the Wasabi & Saffron part right away ~~ I found some designer paper that was sent to me, again from someone in the Wish RAK group (they are so generous!!). Now......how to incorporate the Amethyst, one of my least-used colors. Well, since I didn't have any matching Primas, I used various flower punches & for the biggest layer I used Amethyst. I also used today's Sketch Challenge from SCS. I had to flip it to make it work, & I probably have either one more or one less layer than I'm supposed to, but it worked!! I added some Stickles to the punched flowers, & I used a glue pen & SU's Dazzling Diamonds glitter for her wings. I included a close up so you could see her sparkly wings :)

Hopefully I will receive more Magnolias in the future ~~ I do adore these sweet little images!!
