Just Magnolia.....vintage

Hi crafty peeps......not posted for a couple of days the kids are now officially at home now for six weeks...so hopefully I should be able to enter a few more challenges......
anyway had a bit of a play over the weekend and here is my project for the Just Magnolia challenge.




Hope it's ok to enter this I know it's not a card,. I've really enjoyed doing a few different altered projects over the weekend, and getting painty instead of inky.

This was a light wood colour when I bought it, first I painted it with some green and pearl white acrylic paint left it to dry then painted over it with picket fence distress crackle paint, when that coat had dried I brushed over with some forever green perfect pearls,added the ribbon and then the image and flowers.
Hope you like it..... I love it.

coloring - promarkers
