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.

Skipping Tilda looks really cute in her beautiful blue outfit! I love the way you watercolour your images and place them in lush meadows - you're so skillful with your painting. A stunning card all round!

Oh WOW! Chris this is stunning! I love the jewel tones you have used here they are so rich and beautiful...that paper is just gorgeous! Tilda is absolutely adorable I know I gush over your colouring every time I see one of your cards...well, this is no exception...absolutely breathtaking, my friend! I love how you blend the blue, greens and yellow all gives such a dream-like quality to the image...I get lost in them, really I do! Little pieces of art, they are!
Hope you are keeping well. Hannah's friend and her Mom, our neighbour 2 doors down, just came back from England, Liverpool, visiting her grandparents and she said she had a great time. Made me think of you and all my UK BG teamies!
Big Hugs,t
