Sailor Tilda


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.

Hi Chris, just love your card the colours are just so clean and fresh. I do adore the Tilda stamps they are just so cute. What were you doing up so late at 12.45am posting a card?
Will email you soon on what is happening in my neck of the woods.
Take care
Hugs
