Bikini Tilda shaped & masked Magnolia card

 Hi there & today I'm sharing this shaped Magnolia card I made using 'Bikini Tilda' from the new Sea Breeze collection.
Check out this lovely inspiration photo from MDUC, which I tried to incorporate elements of and loosely based the colour pallete around.
I made a scene using masking technqiues with Tilda and 2 background stamps, then made the shaped  card blank with Go Kreate Frilly Frame #5 die.
Papers are from the same Magnolia Sea Breeze collection. Edges have been inked and distressed slightly with scissor edges. Below shows double loop edge punch by Martha Stewart. The die cut swirls are Tim Holtz on the edge scrollwork. I cut them from kraft & added Picket Fence Distress Stain & when dry shabby white Frantage embossing powder.
The image has been created using Bikini Tilda (Sea Breeze), Vintage Sweedish Bench (Once Upon a Time) and Happy Easter background (Little Easter) stamps. I stamped Tilda, masked over her and stamped the bench, masked the bench (still keeping Tilda masked) and stamped the background. When stamping the background I added the ink, then I masked the bottom half of the image by adding a sticky note directly to the stamp, positioned approx where the bench would be downwards so that none of the Little Easter image showed below the bench.
Distress Inks:
Skin - Tattered Rose, Vintage Photo
Cheeks - Aged Mahogony mixed with Tattered Rose
Hair - Antique Linen, Walnut Stain
red on Bikini & Flowers - Aged Mahogony
Bench - Pumice Stone, Milled Lavendar
Cloud - Whethered Wood, Pumice Stone
Sun - Squeezed Lemonade
Stems - Bundled Sage, Shabby Shutters
Highlighted with Sakura Pen-Touch, White
Flowers are Kort & Godt, Prima & LLC. I hand cut the sign, stamped the letters in Studio G alphabet stamps and curled around the wood.
Above shows Magnolia Doo Hickey So Wrapped So Lovely tag with lace tied around and Blue Moon key charm tied with twine. Tim Holtz hardware findings hindge cut from grungeboard & coated in Snow Tex, then Picket Fence Distress Glitter - set with pearl brad.
