Enjoying The City

Hello everyone its Saturday so that means 2 things.........1 you have me (Vicky) posting a creation today & 2 it's the weekend yayyyyyyyy.
So as you know our theme is Something New Something Old. Well my new is my new Magnolia stamp, I coloured this one up as soon as I got her.........I also have another 3 of the new ones coloured up as well so far lol. 1 more even on a card.........its just need foofiness ;-) What can I say its' an addiction...........I dont think I need help though ;-)
I've used what was the latest Maja Design 'Nyhavn' papers until Sandy got the new baby ones in ............OMG they are so gorgeous & I will be using them for everything NOT just babies lol.
I've inked the edges with Pumice Stone & machine stitched all around the edges.

My other thing new is this Magnolia Doo-Hickey die, I've been after it forever & I finally noticed it was instock this week so grabbed it quick. I cut it out of the 2 same papers & added a rose to the centre. The Bark Heart tucked in behind is one of the older ones before Sandy got the Shabby ones.

A few Doo-Hickey dies on here today lol & of course gorgeous flowers & I also added Magnolia stem things as well...........this is my something VERY OLD as I've had them a looooong time.

There is actually a Magnolia tag under there lol, hard to see on the piccy though. I also added Sandra's Shabby Seam Binding in 2 colours, a Love Pennant Clip & a Pearl Button to the centre of the bow.
I added a Film Strip die cut in half then cut off the banner off one of the Maja Design sheets, I thought she looked as though she was 'Enjoying The City'......perfect for the image ;-)

The magnolia image I coloured with distress markers & inks, her top I coloured with a marker as I love the Stormy Sky in the pen as it's a gorgeous lilac colour.
The Chipboard Frame I've had for a while, I first gave it 2 coats of Gesso & then added Shabby White Fran-Tage in the corners. I also sprayed the image with spray & shine which have made the colours go a bit funny tbh but does give it a nice sheen IRL lol.
List of colours used on my blog.

Ok that's it from me today the builders have arrived to get the roof finished as they are knocking through on Monday eeekkk, I'm dreading the dust :-(
Anyhoo's lovelies hope you have super duper weekend.
Lotsa hugs Vicky xxxxxxx
