Summer Days......

Hello,

I hope you have had a good week and are having a great weekend! Crazy that we are in July already! 
Today I have a card to share with you using one of Magnolia's Sweet Rainbow Collection stamps 'Kneeling Tilda'.


I have coloured Tilda with distress ink pads onto 300gsm watercolour paper.

I have distressed the edges of my card with walnut stain. The leaves and butterflies are Martha Stewart punches. I have used Star Dust stickles. The layers on my cards have been 3d with sticky cushions.


I have also decorated the inside of my card.


Here is the inside left of my card. The fence is a Magnolia Doohickey die. The butterfly an Embelliscrap die cut shape.


Here is the inside right. I have embossed some lines inside my card for a message with a Scorpal.


Thank you so much for your visit.

If anyone is interested this card will be available on EBAY later today.

Enjoy the rest of the weekend and have a fabulous week ahead!

love

Beautiful card, Kim! Beautifully coloured! Supreme embellishment too. Just out of interest - what kind of animal is Hettie? I'd guess a cat but she doesn't really look like one in that basket which seems too tiny for a cat! Hugs, Lesley
