Some Holiday Magnolias


At Pattie's Creations the challenge is Christmas Cards and if you are like me, you need a few more of them. I made this one with one of my favorite Pattie's images called Magnolia Branch. I colored the flowers and leaves using the Tim Holtz Wrinkle Free Distress Method (my favorite way to color flowers and leaves) and some handmade Marshmallow Glimmer Mist. I popped a layer of flowers up to give it some texture. I am not sure most people think of Magnolia's at Christmas but their leaves are very popular in traditional Southern holiday decorating.

Come join in the fun - you don't have to use a Pattie's Creations Image (but we would love it if you did).

Hugz!

  2. Love the scored BG and you have given the flowers life in your colouring! We have many beautiful magnolia trees in our area and just love it when they bloom! Enjoy Black Friday if you are heading out, or just relaxing if you are staying in :)

  11. Now Nancy this is one spectacularly colored magnolia. You have captured the color perfectly. Magnolia's bloom for a long time here in Georgia and their sweet fragrance is very captivating. The micro beads in the center are perfect. This is just so elegant. Love it.

  15. Beautiful magnolias, Nancy, and colored so pretty. Gorgeous card! I used to go over to a house on our church property and cut magnolia leaves to decorate with at Christmas. Guess I'm too lazy now. Ha
