Just Magnolia Challenge Card 5


Heres my fifth card attempt for the Just Magnolia Challenge its a shaped card this time, Im afraid Ive cheated a bit with this one, hope you dont mind.

Ive used Tilda in her bathing costume dipping her feet in the water, and then masked her to sit her on the dock stamp. Ive coloured them with my Faber-Castell pencils and then cut it out completely.

I then printed a design from the Cute Companion Cd from Crafters Companion, this one is a Beach Hut design, I stuck it to a piece of white card and cut it out to resemble a hut with scenery around it. Then Ive stuck a piece of blue pearlescent card along the bottom to resemble water, and stuck the tilda mount just over the edge of the water to make her look as though shes dipping her feet in.

The greeting is a stamp from my Just-Rite set of stampes and Ive cut it out with Nestabilitie circle die and used the pinking circle one for the outer mount. This I have put to the left hand topside to allow it to look like a sun. The last thing I have done is stuck a boat button on the water.

What a lovely card Shirley, really love the idea of how you've set out the scene, and it's definitely not a square card, so you've not cheated lol.

Oh Shirley, your card is fantastic! I love your Tilda dipping her toes and the background image couldn't be more perfect. I really love the sentiment stamp you used too, I'd love to know where you got that if you have a moment, it's perfect for summer cards. Hope you have a great bank holiday weekend. Chris x
