I did this for the Just Magnolia Challenge which is to make a vintage card and paired it up with the Magnolia Down Under Challenge which is to create a Christmas Card. Well as soon as I saw the challenges I knew it was time to ink up this beautiful image that I received from my sweet friend Tammi... I also decided to try my hand at making a countdown card. So fun..took me all day, but it was tons of fun and now that I made one, definately will do a few more.. Well at least that's what I say now..lol...anyway you can find the directions here
I heat embossed Liquid Applique around the trim of her coat, and went back to my roots and used my aqua painter to paint the ribbon.
