WARNING!! lot`s of photo`s.

Evening all, I am really embarrassed to say i bought the Magnolia summer kit when it came out and have never(yes i said it, never) inked these poor little stamps up. I just cant quite believe it. Well i knew exactly what i was going to do with them, I have seen so many other people obviously have the same idea(i hope i have managed to do it a little different).

 Magnolia, Seahorse as well as all other images on this card have been coloured with distress ink refills.  Ribbon is from eBay, white organza, I coloured it with my bright orange promarker.

Little mermaid Tilda, Seaweed, Shells. I have covered the bubbles in glossy accents to make them stand out a little. The shells have been heat embossed with pink embossing powder, unfortunately that was the best colour i had(although nothing else is in pink) i did want them on the card though. I have added stickles crystal glitter around the edge of the card(i think it adds something to the card). Under the stickles glitter is a edging of picket fence crackle paint(you can mainly see it on the corners).

Well i know what your thinking this card is a bit plain and boring, don't you think? i do.

I made it into an easel card :-)

 Seahorse charm can be found HERE. Glitter is stickles waterfall.

Now i have a little confession about these shells, I live about 1 mile away from the sea front, Southend On Sea, to be exact(no stalkers please), but these sadly are not from Southend, their from eBay(holds head in hands).I`m so bad, i know. Also off eBay is the netting ribbon, can`t remember what it`s called(sorry).

P.S My number 1 new years resolution is to ink up and use all my stamps at least once within this year.

Hi Laura!!
I first have to admit that I too have many stamps that have never seen ink yet :o( Your resolution is a good one!
I didn't for one minute think your card front was plain and boring. I thought it was wonderfully coloured and gorgeous with all the 'bling'. Loved that the bubbles had the crystal lacquer on them :o) Also the crackled edges.
Then when I saw it was an easel card with the netting, more pretty bling and sea shells, I thought it was glorious!
It is perfect for our challenge and I am so happy you have joined us at Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog.
Hugs, Candy
