Edwin in Miami

Today I finally got to use some of my new (actually old ones already) Magnolia stamps... Unfortunately I didn't have the time to use them yet... but I got the summer kit a while ago already.
Anyways, as I love those stamps of the Summer Memories Collection I did order some more yesterday. Now I can't wait to receive them!!! :-)

Here's the first Paper Bag I made all by myself...
I found a tutorial (in German only) over at Betty's Creations. She's one talented lady!!!

Stamp: "Edwin in Miami" & "Memory Shells" from Magnolia's Summer Memories Collection
Pigment Ink pad in black, white, brown & red
Colours: Polychromos from Faber Castell
Dies: Spellbinders Nestabilities, Magnolia Doohickeys, Creatables
