Good Morning Magnolia | Be Inspired Blog Hop

Hello everyone, I am so excited to be sharing with you today as part of the Be Inspired Design Team Blog Hop. I've been inspired by all of the members of this design team for such a long time so it is an absolute honour to now be taking part in these monthly blog hops. 

With this months theme being "Anything Goes!" it seems I've joined the team at an ideal time. I had the freedom to create anything and with a box of brand new goodies from the new Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue I could wait to get playing.

The minute I saw the new catalogue I was immediately drawn to this gorgeous magnolia image from the Good Morning Magnolia stamp set. This stamp is the perfect image for colouring and I chose to use my Stampin' Blends in Petal Pink and Mossy Meadow for this project. The magnolia image also looks fantastic uncoloured, if you look closely you'll notice that I've stamped the image several times in Crumb Cake to create a tone on tone background.

To create a little extra texture variation I've added dry embossing using some coordinating dies from the Magnolia Memories Dies and and some copper foil leaves from the same set of dies. 

I hope you have been inspired by my project today and I urge you to continue through the hop to see more inspiring ideas from the rest of the team. Next up is Janneke de Jong, I can't wait to see what she is sharing today.
