Hello friends,

Spring is here in India.. it is quite warm although but still the weather is quite nice. This is the time of the year when lot of festivities go on and I love the meeting, fun and entertainment.
I am so relieved today as now , I am free to take part in all the celebrations.
So here I am showing my first de-stress card. I call all my Altenew cards as DE-STRESS cards as they really release all my tension and stress and perk my falling mood.

Here I am playing along the March Challenge and for this card, I have tried to maintain the theme of the inspiration picture. I have given the look of a maze using the Tonic die and have created drooping magnolia branches along with tiny floral sprays from the Beautiful Day stamp set. I like combining more than two stamp sets together and it gives a lot of character to my cards.
I have painted the Magnolias with Zig brush pens on Brustro water colour paper and then cut them out.
I used the Tonic die to cut out a semi circle and then also cut out the two corners. Then, I distressed it with Mowed lawn and Peeled Paint Distress inks and spritzed some water on top. I stamped the floral spray image from the Beautiful Day Stamp set in Aged Mahogany and coloured with Zig markers.
The Magnolias are coloured by the no line colouring method.

So here is the card with the inspiration picture.
