The Official Magnolia Inspiration Challenge - Summer.........

Hello,

Today is the start of another challenge over at TOMIC. The theme this week is Summer.


I have made my card by masking Tilda onto her swimming ring. I have coloured my images with distress ink pads. The circles and sentiment shapes are nestie dies. The border is a Magnolia Doohickey die.


I have decorated the inside too. I have sprayed my whole card lightly with glimmer mist marshmallow. The stickles I have added are platinum and star dust.
The leaves are a Martha Stewart punch.


Thank you so much for your visit. It would be wonderful if you could join us at TOMIC this week. Please do also go visit the Magnolia design team members blogs to see their amazing creations for inspiration!

Have a lovely week!

love

inks used
skin - antique linen, tattered rose
hair walnut stain
bathing costume - milled lavender
ring - aged mahogany
