Magnolia Licious Blog Hop

Welcome to our Magnolia Licious blog hop Circles, Spots, Dots and Blots. You should have arrived from Karen's S blog. I know she had a beautiful creation to share with you. Isn't her work just amazing?
Today, I would like to share my altered canvas. I painted the canvas with gesso, stenciled with light molding paste. Once this dried I sprayed it Prima Bloom mist spray green and pink. I used the postcard stamp with brown Archival Ink as a background element. I painted a metal frame and chipboard accents with Tim Holtz Picket Fence crackle paint. Below are the stamps and dies I chose. The images were colored with Copic Markers and/or paper pieced. The paper is from Pion's new collection "Paris Flea Market".

Magnolia Licious Stamps -Christmas Lace Heart, Loves Me Loves Me Not Tilda, Postcard, mini Tilda.

Dies - Magnolia Doo Hickey Brides Bow, Butterfly, and Lantern, Eiffel Tower, Heart Vine from the OOh La La Collection. Little Darlings View Finder.

To finish my canvas I add flowers, lace, tulle, ribbon, and bling.
