- All Images are Magnolia stamps (apart from 'home sweet home' which was printed off pc) coloured with prismas. Used sakura glaze pens on all the windows and doors of the houses so they reflect IRL, stickles glue in centre of flowers and all over sun (find 'stardust' is fab for a more clear silvery sparkle- the flowers, but 'rhinestone' stickles is fab for when you want a more golden sparkle like for the sun here and for the centre of the sunflower for my Ismaki card this week). Tried stippling my own cloud and grass background with chalk ink and a paper mask and it turned out o.k I think. Birdie stuck and dangled off a bit of metallic thread. Only patterned paper used was for the inside edges of frame and is what I based my colour palette around. The thing that took the longest besides deciding where everything should go was cutting around the fence!

PTW: Frame Card
This week's papertake weekly challenge was a fab frame card tutorial by Claudia. The frame itself is easy to make (thanks to Claudia's clear photo instructions!) but what does take time is decorating it! That's because I decided to do a scene picture with all my Magnolia stamps which I haven't really done yet (apart from my nephew's door hanger) and now I know why - it takes me so long!! Anyway, I made it for me just as a picture to sit on my desk so at least I know I'll appreciate the effort :)
