Yeah Magnolia stamps!

Woo Hoo! I'm finally the proud owner of a Tilda and Edwin stamp (hopefully the start of a large collection!!) The images are lovely, only I'm not sure whether I should be adding a nose and mouth? What do you all do?

Again not sure I like the card, but having stamped and coloured the image, I wanted to make use of the image rather than having it sat in a box for ages until I could find something to do with it. Used background paper from The English Paper Company, embossed some purple card with the swirls cuttlebug embossing folder, a heart shaped paperclip. The Edwin image was edged with Brilliance ink in pearlescent lavender and then mounted onto some pale lilac gingham card. after the straight lines on the backing paper I wanted to keep all of the bits on top angled (failed miserably as the three jewels at the bottom are in a straight line).

Feeling a bit low on inspiration at the moment, but may go and watch Create and Craft for a while to see if that kick starts something - see you later!

A lovely card. I have some Magnolia stamps and I prefer to see their face left as they are, but I know other people feel they should add a mouth or nose.
