Friday Sketchers Ch 63 & Simon Says Stamp

Afternoon ladies, this card is my second DT card for Magnolia and I have used a stamp from the very lovely Lazy Summer Days Collection. I have followed the sketch from Friday Sketchers Challenge 63 however I have rotated it..... just had to faff around! and this card is also for the Simon Says Challenge this week which is distressing.

I love this stamp of Tilda with Bike, I think it is one of my favs from this collection. I have coloured her with distress inks, as usual, and highlighted with my inkssentials pen. The papers and flowers came in my Magnolia DT kit and the ribbon is from poppicrafts. I have lightly distress the edges of the DP with fired brick and around the image in broken china to make the sky

Finally a close up of my image.

Card/Paper: Card & Paper from Magnolia
Stamps: All Magnolia - Lazy Summer Days Collection
Colouring: Distress inks - tattered rose, worn lipstick, vintage photo, walnut stain, fired brick, peeled paint, broken china, weathered wood, black soot.
