Ship Ahoy.......


Hope you are all well and your week is off to a good start. The weather here has not been so good, but I am still clinging to the hope that it will pick up again before we turn into autumn. This year is going way too fast!

I have made an easel card today. I have used the sweet  Magnolia Pirate Tilda with the background from the latest Magnolia stamp club kit. I have coloured my images with distress ink pads. These have been stamped onto Waterford watercolour paper with black versafine. 

The circles are die cut from nesties and the stickle glue is star dust. I have embossed the shells again with glitter embossing powder and distressed these with tattered rose and edged with tea dye. I have edged all my papers with vintage photo, after distressing them with Tim's distressing tool. I have sprayed my flags and butterflies with iridescent gold glimmer mist. 

Well, I thank you so very much for your visit and hugs and kisses for all your kind comments you are so very sweet!
