Now for today’s project:

I am just loving Melanie's State Flowers series! So I decided to use one of those sets to showcase today. I used Stately Flowers 3. I LOVe that big ole magnolia!



I love it when the Magnolia Trees are blooming around here. Love the smell and how big and gorgeous they are. I colored this one with Prisma pencils and gamasol. And used the smaller magnolia in the set to create the background. I think it turned out pretty good! :D I also made a card using her newest set Stately Flowers 5...


Had to color up that gorgeous purple flower! :D I used copic markers on this one and colored several to cut out too to add dimension.

Ready for more awesome eye candy?

Cat, your cards are gorgeous. Ilove magnolias too. I grew up with them and still remember their beauty and well as their fragrance. Unfortunately for the past 40 years, I have lived in a colder climate where they can't grow.

What amazing artwork Cat. I love them both but must say I am partial to the Pasque flower which I had to own. So far I have not used it though...but that will change soon. It always blooms in the early spring.
