Can you tell that I kind of like Magnolia Stamps?? Here is one of the latest to join the Tilda gang. I don't think there's any of the Magnolia stamps that I don't like. I also think Magnolia stamps are great value for money and they always stamp out really well. I buy most of mine from a wonderful craft shop in the next village to us. It's not a really big shop but it has a quilting department, needlework and knitting department but most of all it's papercraft department is the best, well I would say that wouldn't I?? The staff are lovely but the super talented Katy is soo helpful and since she has been working there they now have a great selection of stamps like Magnolia, Kraftin' Kimmie, Sarah Kay and Mo Manning to name a few. They have even started stocking cotton lace, all thanks to Katy, she knows what we like. So please click here for a look around their online shop and have a peek at Katy's fab blog here.
Anyway back to my card, this is for another friend who also had her birthday this week. I have distressed the patterned paper by cutting the paper to the size I wanted, mounted it onto a piece of watercolour paper, distressed the edges using a little distressing tool by Tim Holtz and finished off by inking the edges with the fabby Walnut Stain Distress ink. I think doing it this way gives a lovely finish, try it, you might like it too.
