Summer greetings

Hi everyone! I am back with a Summer card for you. I really hope you are enjoying the Summer. Here in Norway it is raining at the moment. And I wish for some sunny days.

The image from Magnolia is coloured with Distress Ink, on water colour paper. I use a paper called Bockingford 300g. It has a really smooth surface which is perfect for the Distresses. Can you spot which papers I have used? Yes, it is the lovely Denim & Girls papers!

I have cut out the flowers from those papers, ofcourse! Then using dies from Magnolia. I cut out the flowers, then I spray the paper with water, curl them up, and let them to dry. Then you get the crunchy look. I also paint over them with white Gesso.

Under you get a better look of how the card is built up.

And those gorgeous flowers.

Thank you so much for visiting the Maja Design blog!

With love,

  • What a beautiful card here Camilla, it sure set the mood for summer, that´s for sure. Here it´s blowing like crazy too and raining on and of, and it´s only between 11 and 14C, so thaat´s not much of a summerfeel either, but nice that you can tribute with such an amazing summercard then, Really gorgeous work as always hun. Have a wonderful summer everyone, and hopefully better than ours here.

    • Thank you so much? It Sounds like we live on the same place. Hopefully it will get better, orelse it will be much craft time?
      Have a wonderful summer❤️ Hugs, Camilla
