Sailor Tilda


EDITED

Sorry, I've had to remove the photographs as apparently this card does appear in the Swedish version of Magnolia Ink which I was unaware of when I published the post

Hi everyone, hope you had a good weekend. Another of my Magnolia cards to show today which didn't make it to Magnolia Ink but it's a summer card so it's nice to post it on the blog now. The sweet sailor Tilda and pier background were masked together and water coloured with distress inks then layered on red, blue and swiss dot embossed white velvet card. Finished off with the ribbon tied between the layers, a few dots with white gel pen, some stickles and a threaded button. See you on Wednesday with my TSG blog hop card and thanks as always for your lovely comments, I appreciate them very much.
