The Stampin’ UP! Good Morning Magnolia stamp set is one of my very favorite stamp sets in the new 2019/2020 Stampin’ UP! catalog.
Have you ever wondered how to color a magnolia?
I had never given it a single thought, until this gorgeous stamp set came along.
Today’s card was created for my friends Tina & Amy.
Remember I am celebrating women the month of April and I didn’t want to leave these two ladies off my list.
You’ll have to watch the video to hear the story about these two ladies and how they helped me during a pretty terrible time in my life.
In my video I mention that if you are in a situation where you are being mistreated please get out of it. If you need help doing so I found this hotline as a resource for you: 800-799-3224
The coloring for this card came together beautifully. I was so happy with the outcome and am anxious to color it again and see if I can get a little different look.
TIPS & INSTRUCTIONS:
+ Start with the dark Flirty Flamingo Stampin’ Blends in the areas that you want the darkest. The shadow areas.
+ Blend the color out with the light Flirty Flamingo blend marker.
+ Make sure to leave the ends of your petals white.
+ Use the Petal Pink blends to create even more shading going out towards the end of the petal but being sure to leave the white at the very end
