Have you seen the Magnolia Stamps Mini World miniatures? Have you wondered why you would want a Magnolia in such a tiny size? Well . . . here's a treat to tempt you.
I'm thrilled to have gotten my hands on a couple of these babies. I've used the Magnolia miniature Edwin on Sled and Winter Forest to create the background of a little snow scene with the Magnolia Tilda with Fir from the 2010 Merry Little Christmas Collection.
This photo shows the three stamped images filled with Copic markers on a 5 1/4 x 4" piece of Bazzill Smooth White.
I attempted to create some shadows and used my Copic Cool Gray markers to add some cold-looking snow. Things in the distance appear to be smaller and these miniatures are absolutely perfect for adding that effect. This photo shows my fair attempts at using these miniatures to create depth in my card art . . .
Here's a photo of this snow scene adhered to the front of a Bazzill A2 card (4 1/4 x 5 1/2"). Since Magnolia images are of angels that speak from their hearts, I imagine that Edwin is sledding toward Tilda so they can put that tree on the sled for the rest of the trip home. I had to remind myself that Magnolias are sweet because my first thought was "Men! Go Figure." LOL!!! He's playing around while she's doing all the work! . . . Remember . . . They're angels that speak from their hearts, Rose . . .
I added some atyou Spica clear for glimmer over the trees, the fur on Tilda's coat and places in the snow. I'm not sure that I want to add any embellishments to the card front as they may distract from the snow scene. Hmmm . . . do you have any suggestions?
