In the Magnolia_Down_Under_Challenge#7 the challenge was to make a card in sepia tones using a magnolia image.
I have been watching this blog for quite some time and since I had finally got access to some magnolia images, I decided it was time for me to take part in one of the challenges.
At first I thought I had made life difficult for myself and has chosen a hard one to start with, but as I sorted through my stash of papers, I came across just the right tonings I wanted.
I watercoloured the image, and then highlighted a few select spots with chalks - I think I have made the top just a bit too bright for a true sepia toning, but am still happy with the way my card turned out. Of course, it would not be a CrafteeCC card without any bling - I have put just the tiniest bit of bling (kindy glitz) on the wings ;) and added gold sticker sentiment and on corners.
