Sweet Summer Tilda

Hello everyone, sorry about the lack of posts this week, I have been chasing my tail a bit lately but I think I am caught up with things now.... well just about anyway!!! The card I have to show you was sent to a fellow blogger for her birthday, I know she has received it now so I can show it here too! I am entering into three challenges; Just Magnolia Challenge 52 has a theme of anything goes, and both Creative Card Crew Challenge 48 and Spoon Full of Sugar challenge 100 have a theme of birthday cards.

My Published Card

Hello everyone, the card I have to show you today was one of the cards that I had published in the second Magnolia Ink magazine. It fits perfectly with two challenges; Simon Says Stamp has a theme of distressing and Creative Card Crew Challenge 47 has a theme of vintage/aged.

Well, I really struggle to achieve a distressed look well, but when I reveived the DT kit for the magazine, it just said "distress" to me so I gave it my best shot and I was pretty pleased with how my cards turned out in the end. The stamp is an older Magnolia stamp from the Spring 2007 Valentine and Congratulations Collection and it is coloured with distress inks and highlighted with stickles. I have stamped all the edges of each element with different flourish stamps, also from Magnolia, and I have also distressed them with antique linen distress ink. I have used the Magnolia Old Valentine Letter stamp from the Valentine Collection 2009 to add some detail to a piece of card and also distressed it with antique linen.

Card/Paper: All provided by Magnolia
Stamps: Magnolia
Colouring: Distress inks
Embellishments: Roses, stickles, heart, ribbon, pearls
Tools: Ink applicator tool, water brush
