Good Morning Magnolia for #PCC356

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am going to share with you my project for this weeks Paper Craft Crew Sketch Challenge.  The sketch for this week is a great one that's open to so many possibilities.  For my Card today I used products from the Magnolia Lane Suite.  Here's a look at my card.
I decided to do a little no line stampin' blend coloring on my card today.  Here's a look at the sketch that inspired my card today.  You can click on the image below to visit the Paper Craft Crew Website and see what the other design team members created this week, and if you want to play along you can do that there as well.

Tips & Tricks: 

I started my card with a Purple Posy card base cut at 4 1/4 x 11 scored at 5 1/2.  I stamped the small magnolia from the Good Morning Magnolia Stamp Set around my card base in Purple Posy ink.  Yes, Purple Posy is officially out and able to be purchased.  The issue with the ink has been fixed and it's working great now.  Once I had that image stamped all out I stamped it on a scrap of Thick Whisper white cardstock so that I could do a little no line stampin' blend coloring.  
But, before I did my no line coloring I colored a piece of the Magnolia Lane Designer series paper with my Purple Posy Stampin' Blends.  This is a great way to alter your designer series paper to match your projects.  I used another pattern from the same pack of paper matted to a piece of Mossy Meadow Cardstock.  I have another piece of Mossy Meadow behind that as well.  I also added a small strip of basic black between the card base and the designer series paper.  
To do my no line coloring I stamped the image in Purple Posy Ink.  But, to get the shade light enough I stamped it on a scrap paper and then onto my thick whisper white cardstock.  Even with Purple Posy being a super light color I still wanted it to be just a little lighter.  I started my coloring with the stem and leaves.  For that I used my Mossy Meadow Stampin' Blends in both light and dark.  For the flower I used Purple Posy Light and dark and Highland Heather Light and Dark.  The flower took the longest time to color.  The thing with no line coloring is that you have to color the image dark enough so that you have a clear divide between each petal.  Basically you have to have a clear difference between your shadows and highlights, maybe that will make it more understandable.  
To finish off my card I popped up the magnolia bloom using a Stampin' Dimensional, and added the sentiment strip and a few basic Rhinestones.  I hope that you have enjoyed my little card today, and that you will give it a try.  Thanks for dropping by I am happy that you did.  Just a little side note today kicked off the 24 Hour Stamp Sale over at my online store.  You will find a select section of stamps there.  The sale ends tonight at 11:59 Mountain Time.  
Happy Stampin'
