Okay.. :-) this is for now my final gift set made with the Magnolia Pet Collection stamps. Can you believe it??? The set is inspired by some Haribo candies my friend Crissy sent my son Lucas and is already since 2 months in Sweden. The bag had the same parrot on the front.. i just colored it a bit different to match my paper. The parrot is first colored with Copic markers but than i added a thin coat with Shimmerz paint "under the sea" as you can see it still lets the colors shine through but gives a nice shine and sparkleI do agree the papers are not very tropical but so pretty :-) i kind of like the combination paper and stamp. :-) I like to leave some cards without a sentiment.. this way i can just use them when i need one for an occasion. Always nice to have something like this in the drawer.
