The Rubber Buggy 'Tilda on the Beach' by Deb.x

Hi all & today I'm catching up on my Saturday post for The Rubber Buggy Inspiration Blog. It's been such a hectic few days - first of all my laptop screen stopped working on Thursday and kept flickering then going completely black or white. So I thought I was in the market for a new laptop However when I took it in to the shop to the guy who I always deal with for IT related stuff, he told me I could plug it into a moniter & use like a desktop. So I've just got back & plugged in & wouldn't you know it - when the laptops plugged into the moniter the sceen on the actual laptop works fine, would you believe it?!! So I've gone from a dogey screen, to 1 broken screen, to 2 fully working screens at the same time! Ha. Computers will be the death of me I swear!
Anyways here is my summer Magnolia card I made using this ever so cute 'Tilda on the beach' stamp fromt the new Sea Breeze collection. I teamed her with my new LOTV sentiment stamp which complimented the image perfectly.
The papers I used are 12x12 Blue Vintage Hydrangea (front & back) from the new Sea Breeze collection and New England Wood from Bon Voyage collection - LOVE this for nautical makes! All edges have been inked with Antique Linen & Walnut Stain Distress Ink pads using a blending tool then distressed with edge of scissors.
The shaped card blank has been made with Go Kreate Frilly Frame #5 die. The feur de Lies Spellbinders die & Tim Holtz on the edge Scrollwork die have both been cut from kraft cardstock then coated in Picket Fence Distress Stain & Snow Tex.
I stamped the Tilda image onto watercolour paper, then again on to a scrap piece of thin card, cut the Tilda out and placed her over the origional image as a 'mask', then stamped the LOTV greeting in Whethered Wood Distress Ink. I coloured the image & around the sentiment with Distress Inks using a normal watercolour brush.
 Distress Inks:
Skin - Tattered Rose, Vintage Photo
Cheeks - Tattered Rise mixed with Aged Mahogony
Hair - Antique Linen, Walnut Stain
 Swin Suit - Whethered Wood shaded with Pumice Stone
Trim - Pumice Stone
Highlighted with White Sakura Pen-Touch
And here's a quick look at the inside where I've also stamped the LOTV sentiment, this time onto the wood paper, circles are Spellbinders dies and the kraft die cuts have been cut with Feur de Lies Accents die.
