Fancy a swim anyone?

Good afternoon everyone
Its gorgeously sunny here today in the UK, which we are enjoying, such perfect weather for perfect for this card.
I have coloured up the first of my new Tildas with distress ink. This is Tilda playing in the water, from the new sea side collection, so very cute and yes I coloured her toes blue, as they would be wet from the water, he he!
I love these patterned Prima Roses, they are divine!

The scrapiniec chip board sentiment is frantaged. The two straws are bound together with 2 types of natural hemp twine.

Seashells, chip board and beach hut ribbon.

I have used a sketch from Craft heaven shop and again gone with one of my favourite colour combinations, Pink and a mix of aqua colour hues.
Have a great day!!!

Tilda Picking Olives

Afternoon Everyone.
The weather is lovely here in the UK at the moment, so nice to see some sunshine for a change he he!
I have been practicing colouring with my distress inks, here is a card that I have coloured.
I am quite partial to purple and green and as a colour combo they are quite striking.
I have used Maja Design plum papers, as these are similar in colour and shape to the olives in my picture. The frame is cut from designer paper for the top layer and a second layer of deep plum coloured card, I offset them a little, so that the plumb colour shows through a little.

The large purple roses and seam binding are all hand dyed and I created a little pearl pin to match!

The gorgeous ribbon is from the Ribbon Girl and I've used a wooden swirl from Craft heaven shop and woodchip Happy Birthday from Unique Crafts.

Dancing Italian Tilda

Good Aternoon,
Here is a card that I made in pink for a change. I wouldn't consider my self a a person who favours blue, as I am quite girly.
But I've made a few blue cards lately, especially as our theme at LHOSM is something blue, so here is a pink card for a bit of a change!

I have used dancing Italian Tilda and coloured her with distress inks and added a touch of frantage.

I love this chipboard sentiment that I have frantaged too, the gorgeous papers are from the new 'Crafts and You' range, that the Ribbon Girl now stock and the butterflies and magnolia tag, are cut from the same paper.
Thank you for stopping by today.

Pine apple and beach themed card

Good morning everyone,
I am here with a beach themed card that I made for fun! I love making beach themed cards, I think as I don't get to make them on a regular basis.

Coloured With Copics, I Used Spring basics papers and all the die cuts are Magnolia doohickeys, except my Joy Craft butterfly border..

The two little sentiments are just perfect for this beach themed card.

I hand dyed my lace and seam binding  with DI's, to add a lighter touch of colour to my card. I also added an ALOHA charm to the seam binding and little sea shells mixed in with my gorgeous WOC florals. 

Thank you for stopping by today, have a lovely day!
