Julia's Magnolia Circle with Linear Leaf Background

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

For the background, I misted a piece of Watercolour Card with Phill Martin CS Misters in Electric Blue, Lime Burst and Purple Paradise. There was a little bit of Pixie Powder from somewhere that ended up on my background too - I was fine with that. I put aside to dry.

I cut the Linear Leaf Background into a piece of Coconut White Card, extending it widthways and lengthways as described in this post.

Once my misted background was dry, I added my Linear Leaf Background. I made a frame using dies #2 and #4 from the Stitched Square Peg Board Die Set and added it to my backgrounds using Woodware Foam Tape. I matted onto a couple of pieces of Coconut White Card.

I stamped the Julia's Magnolia Circle Stamp to Die For onto Coconut White Card using Onyx Black Versafine. I stamped the sentiment from the Petite Lavish Sentiments. I added CS Clear Detail Embossing Powder and heat set. I coloured in using Pixie Powders - Aubergine Dream, Straw Yellow and Pale Olive. I cut out using the largest die in the Julia Die Set.

I cut some leaves out of Coconut White Card using the Oak Leaf Swag Die Set. I made some flowers out of some more of my misted background and Coconut White Card using the Spiral Flower Die Set.

    I had to laugh at your comment about the Pixie Powder, it can get to some unexpected places so is aptly named but that can be nice too. A beautiful card today Julia.
