Ismaki Sketch #41
It is so long since I have managed to do an Ismaki sketch but at long last here is a card based on sketch #41. I have used some a Magnolia stamp from the Winter Stampclub and Basic Grey papers.
Thanks to Annie, Ink n Rubba's advice about watercolour paper I have finally managed to colour with Distress Inks - thanks Annie.
Supplies
Stamps: Magnolia - Tilda With Bell, Stampin Up - Sentiment, Basic Grey - Swirl (background)
Tools: Distress Inks, Cuttlebug, Flower, Button, Gems, Stampin Up Thread, Langton Hot Pressed 300g Watercolour Paper, Koi Waterbrush
DP: Basic Grey

she's a cutie, and probably one of my favourite Magnolias at the moment - I do seem to have used her more often than some of the others! I'm glad you managed to get the paper and inks sorted out and love the card you made. hugs, annie x

Fabulous card Andrea. I saw this advice from Annie too and will try again with these inks very soon.
