Skipping Tilda

Hi everyone, hope you've had a good weekend. A card today using one of the older Tilda's but I  think she's very sweet with her skipping rope. The image is coloured with distress inks and cut out with a Nestabilities labels die and layered onto a doily and then K&Co paper. I've also used the gorgeous Magnolia Doo Hickey lace die, flora doodle flowers, Viva pearl pen and stickles. The sentiment is from Magnolia and cut out with a Nestabilities tag die. The paper edges are distressed and torn then sponged with peeled paint distress ink and I've finished off the card with a pretty ribbon.

I'm entering my card into these challenges:
Just Magnolia Challenge which this week is 'Vintage'
Everybody Art Challenge 'blue and white' (well it's mainly blue and white :D)
Raise the bar 'Ripped, torn, distressed, broken'
Sir Stampalot Challenge 'Lazy days of summer'

See you tomorrow with my TSG Blog hop card and thanks as always for your comments which I always love to read.

Magnolia Wedding collection DT card

Hi everyone, I hope you've had a good start to the week. I have a card using the gorgeous Wedding Collection stamps today and I've been dying to have Tilda and Edwin sitting on top of the cake :D. The water colouring is with distress inks and I've added stickles, pearl pens and gold glamour dust to make everything sparkle. The cake was cut out and attached to the bottom of the front of the heart card so that it stands up and Tilda and Edwin were shaped a bit and glued in place with gel glue. The edges of the heart shaped card and the swiss dots embossed heart are sponged with a gold ink pad.

I'm entering my card into the ABC Challenge where this time the theme is 'You and Me' although I'm not sure if I properly meet the requirements now that I've looked more closely, I've used three stamps? :D

Thanks as always for your lovely comments, I always appreciate them.

BasicGrey Challenges 24 - Gingham

Hi everyone, hope you've had a good week and the heatwave (if you're in the UK) isn't sapping you too much :)! We have a new challenge on Basic Grey Challenges today and our theme is Gingham. The girls have made some fantasic cards so I hope you can pop over to see them and join us in the challenge. Heidi at Simon Says Stamp is offering $25 voucher to the store so even more reason to join in :D!!

I've used a sweet Tilda from the latest Magnolia collection and she's water coloured with distress inks, cut out and stickled. Not much else to say really, I wanted the pretty scene on the Websters Pages paper to show so I kept the card very simple just adding some ribbon and pearls and a layer of gingham and another of WP paper. Enjoy your Saturday and thanks as always for the lovely comments, they're always appreciated.
