Revamp some magnolia cards :) part 1

11:24 11 Comments
Good Morning do you do...:) i have just keep counting my day back to work..really make me nervous. :P. by the way today i would love to share a card out of 3 cards that i revamp just because i want to send it for publications. If you see on the picture (top) all the magnolia comes in same series and design..that is because it is "left over" from the classes that i taught. so not to waste the coloured images i used it for cards.but my friends suggest me to change the image as it isnt qualify if you use the same image with the same series. so that is why i changed 2 of them as well as the colour tone. so for today i will share with you one of it first :). For today card i didnt change the colour at all however i did change the sentiment. i want to make thank you theme for this set of cards :)
This is the original card. i used sticker from SRM stickers that i won from get sketchy challenge :). love this stickers :) too bad the shipping is away to expensive for few sheet of stickers that totally light :( if not i will just become their loyal customer :P.

The papers that i used are from prima marketing. It is their latest collection--madeline. I just love specifically this two pattern paper--the roses and the fade blue polkadot. It is really hard to get this type of pattern paper in Singapore. So when i saw this and almost fully used this 2 pattern papers..i decided to trip down to scrapbook shop and stock up few more sheets of this PP. just love it! :)
flower is punched from pattern paper from the same range with musical note on it. Flower puncher and the small cirle are from EK success. Magnolia is coloured with prismacolour :). I have a friend from Korea that coming down to Singapore pretty soon (on march) so i decided to become greedy a little bit by asking her to buy another set :). Last time i bought my very first set prismacolour from Korea and i found it is away cheaper than buy from US or singapore so why not just buy another set...i may not go to Korea pretty soon..and my friend may not come down to Singapore very often :)..Hi mellissa so sorry to trouble you :) i know it is pretty heavy :P.thanks so much :)

By the way..lately i have been browsing around youtube video. i was searching for tutotial how to use tombow what it is mean? means i want to buy it also :P. i have never really use watercolour based marker before. i have some with is ZIG brushable and memento,but somehow it is doens work the same way like tombow. Tombow you can leave it for few second and you still can blend it use water. I did try brushable it works when you apply and quickly brush it with water--i dont like it. No need to say doenst blend with water..but the colours soo pretty :) Any of you every try to use tombow dual markers pen before? I love it since i saw tht tutorial but it is really very costly! but i do love it..the question is now i always see the crafter in youtube always use canson watercolour papers...i dont have it how :P? do you think it will works for another brand of watercolour markers? i use dawler roney watercolour papers. Hope you share if you do use that pens :)

Another stuffs..while writing this blog i am listening and stopping by awhile at youtube to watch scrapbook haul for crafters in USA...i am totally jealous!! :) wish i could have stay there..and i will shop daily :). It is soo cheap...martha stewart puncher at USD 4.99..isnt that here at least SGD 23 which means about USD15-16...fiuh...:(. i have to go USA one day!! no matters what..hobby lobby,michaels, Jo ann,etc. :)

That is it from me busy envy those scrapbook hauls from crafters in USA

I have just received a phoned call from office that i might be working with (havent confirmed as i havent signed the aggreement).
