More Magenta

All good things must come to an end they say and by the time Mr Blogger posts this one we will be leaving our last port of call in Northern Spain and heading homeward.......I really hope the weather has improved since we left because we sure are going to be cold otherwise.......just prior to us leaving the UK at the end of July as I schedule this post, temperatures in the Mediterranean were in the last 30's and early 40's, warm or what.

This is a really quick and easy card created for Sir Stampalot using Magenta 41017.K. The background for the stamped sections were created using Stayzon pumpkin, sunflower and citrus, sponged onto gloss cardstock. To create a softer look and to 'persuade' the colours to blend I spritzed with water. When dry I stamped with versafine black and embossed with detail clear. The other two sections are bazzil cardstock run through the Bug using the script folder. Some cord, a flower and brad added to embellish.
