Shabby Chic window card (Magnolia stamp image)

Hi everyone,

It's been a while since I've created with Magnolia stamps so I decided to get them back out and now I've created 2 cards to show you with my lovely Tildas on them.

I had grand designs for an easel card with windows and doors, lovely front garden etc but when I realised how large my window and shutters were, that idea quickly went out the window (pardon the pun hehe). I created a brick effect behind the window with my brown copic marker (E37) and my colourless marker. I have also used some chipboard corners and heat embossed them with some white powder. I distressed and inked all the edges to give it a shabby chic feel.
