Summery Tilda xxxx

The challenge at Just Magnolia this week is Summer and I think Tilda looks very summery sitting on a log in the meadow in the sunshine.

Here's me card :))x

I did a bit of masking for this - 3 different stamps here, and this is the first time I've used the background stamp. I coloured most if it with the usual PMs and Glamour Dust combi, but I used chalks for the sky and I wanted a more subtle look.

The papers are Nitwits - Summer Breeze - and the ribbon is from a local floristry warehouse near me. I love the colour cos it is so fresh.

You can see the paper a bit better here, and also the little gems which I got from Creative Pastimes in Ellesmere Port.

Pretty aren't they :)x

The sentiment is from a Woodware set

Plenty of dimension here.
I doubled up the foam pads on the image so it was really raised.

And that's it.

I am quite pleased with how this turned out. I think mainly cos I like those colours.

Kyla is making cakes as I am doing this post.
I will have one of these cos we know that they are spit/snot/mucky fingers free. And I am so glad that I am not the only one who makes up excuses not to eat their 'not home made' offerings. These cakes are only out of a packet (Mary Baker meets Dora The Explorer!!) but she loves doing them. If I get chance, I'll treat you to a pic when I next post so you can enjoy them too!!

Bet you can barely wait lol xxx

I might be back later cos I have nearly finished another challenge card, but if events overtake me - as they often do in this house - then I'll see ya tomorrow.

Hope everyone is having a fab weekend, despite the weather, which is grey and overcast here. Wish I was sitting in that meadow with Tilda cos the weather looks far far nicer there :(xx

Hugs xxxx

Hi Dawny

Love this summery card.

Perfect masking, with these 3 stamps. A background stamp makes all the difference, adding depth and detail - might have to spend some money there lol!!!

Stunning card Dawny and love the dimension too! So summery and beautifully coloured! As for the leaves on my latest card I simply stamped with versamark and heated with clear embossing powder then cut out! Thanks for your lovely comment, HuGs Kim :)
