Cherry Kisses - Magnolia Card

Lovely Monday to you all!
Hope you had a great weekend.
Despite my busy weekend, I was able to sit down and play with this adorable stamp.
I wanted to keep her light and fresh, so I did a color wash with Distress Ink then adding more of the same color ink to the shadow area.
I like the result of this coloring style, you will see me use this technique more often :)

Doesn't she look so sweet with her cherry basket?
Yes she does, and she is sending you some sweet "Cherry Kisses"


Magnolia Stamp: Tilda with Cherry
Coloring Medium: Distress Ink
Paper: Magnolia
