As mentioned, I am back to share my 2nd version of the Craft-a-Flower Magnolia. This set proves to be so popular that it is already sold out over Altenew. Thankfully, Simon Says Stamp still has few in stock (see the affiliate link at the end of the post).
I gave myself a challenge to create various shades of Magnolia. The above was my first version. Both cards' sentiments are from the Pots and Plants Stamp Set (linked below)
I started out with creating a watercolor background. I swiped the blue marker from the Hawaiian Shores Markers Set on acetate. I added water and ink-smooshed the paper. Once dry, I stamped the leaves onto the watercolor background.
The colors and contrast of the flowers are surprisingly beautiful to me. I die cut many pieces from the Gradient Cardstock and did some mix and match. I highly encourage you to get various color paper to try out. The creative process is always part of the fun.

Just gorgeous Virginia. Your colour schemes are stunning
Great sample showing dynamic color use.

Both cards are so pretty. I really like the ink smooshed background that you did for the card today. Looks so pretty with the flower colors.
I like the watercolor background and the different colors for the magnolia.
Stunning as always, love the smooshed background and nice color combination for magnolia.
Gorgeous magnolia flowers! Pretty backgrounds and colors!
No surprise that this CAF is sold out, Virginia! Your cards are so lovely, as always. Love the colors you chose to make the magnolias.
Your cards are beautiful. Love the blue background on the blue card.
