Good Morning Ladies hope you all enjoy your weekend, its the last free one for me and hubby for at least four weeks, so Im going to enjoy the peace and quiet before all hells let loose, next Friday we are of to Norfolk to pick up the first two grandchildren to bring back for a weeks holiday, I do so hope the weather improves as it will make taking them out and about a bit more pleasant than its been for the last week.
Anyway todays card has been created for this weeks Just Magnolia Challenge which is a "Sketch by Bev", and Stampin for the Weekends "A Receipe, 1 Ribbon, 2 Flowers and 3 Gems or Charms" I have taken it litterally and although Ive put most of their requirements into the mix, I have actually added an extra flower as it looked a better with it.
The Tilda image is one of the new ones from New Arrivals Set. I got this one in my Stamp Club collection on Thursday, isnt she sweet hanging on for dear life to that Anchor, I do so hope she doesnt fall of, anyway Ive stamped her onto white card before colouring her with my copic pens then used two of the large Retangle Dies from the Nestabilitie range, the sentiment is also one of the new ones from the same set and Ive cut this out with a tag die and mounted it onto a piece of blue card the same as my image.
The base card is a 7"x 7" white card with three papers from Kay Miller downloads, they are from three different sets, High Seas, Ocean Adventures and Cape Sands, the first layer is a blue swirl one that represents the sea, and this was mounted onto blue card, the second layer is a shells and sand pattern and Ive used the shell border punch from Martha Stewart along both edges, this was stuck across the bottom layer, on this is the third mount of blue card and I have stuck a paper with a slightly smaller wave design on top. I then wrapped a piece of ribbon around the bottom and attached it to the back of the first mount, Then my mounted image was stuck towards the left as the sketch shows and my mounted sentiment at the top on the right.
To finish of I have stuck some silver gilt seahorses and shells in the centre, and arranged three roses at the top on the right with some punched out ash leaves. I have taken a bit of liberty with moving the flowers but I sincerely hope that JM does allow me to do so, as I feel it balances out better this way.
I am entering this card into the following challenges:-
