Neat & Tangled June Release, Day 3: Magnolia

Hello, hello!

It’s the third day of the Neat & Tangled June release, and we are showcasing another fabulous stamp set!

Day 3 is for the Magnolia stamp set – here’s my card:

I wanted to see if I could create a floral arrangement with the images from this set without actually doing any detailed colouring to the images, so I looked for some offcuts from my experiments with watercolour on YUPO. I stamped the images with Archival Jet Black ink onto the YUPO and let it dry for about an hour.

I then die-cut the images out using the coordinating dies and began arranging them onto my card base. At this point, nothing seemed to be working for me, so I set the pieces aside and die-cut an oval aperture out of a panel of white cardstock.

I stamped a sentiment from the set straight down onto my card base and then foam mounted the oval aperture piece onto the card front. This acted like an anchor to hold all the die-cut magnolia images!

I arranged the pieces around the oval, allowing the sentiment to peek through. Once happy, I adhered some pieces straight down, while foam mounting others.

To finish, I adhered some sequins and flicked a few tiny gold paint splats.

Pop by the Neat & Tangled Blog to see what the rest of the DT has created – all the sets that we are showcasing this week will be available in the shop from Friday, 8 June at 8am EST!

Thanks for looking 🙂
