Dots or Gingham at Marvelous Magnolia


It's Thursday and time for another challenge at Marvelous Magnolia. :) This week we want you to use dots or gingham on your creations.

We have a great sponsor this week - Tilda's Town ;)

I wrote in my last blog post that I was waiting for our mail man to bring me summer stampclub kit and he did! :) Stamps included are so cute! Of course I had to use one of them. I don't know what the name of this sweetie is but I think we'll soon find out. I can't wait to see the rest of the Sea Breeze Collection.
I found this lovely dotted paper in one of the First Edition's paper packs called Blank Canvas. I used one big sea star. I didn't have anything that would go with the sea themed card so my godmother gave me this cute sea star. :)


 For this card I used:
  • colors: TH distress ink markers and distress ink pads
  • ink: Archival black
  • watercolor paper: Langton HP 300g
  • design papers: First Edition - Blank canvas
  • dies: TH - Scrollworks, Magnolia DooHickey - Scalloped tag
  • stamp:Sea Breeze Collection, 2013
  • flowers from Wild orchid crafts, I am roses and my stash
  • paper doily
  • cheesecloth
  • stickles glue (stardust)
  • frantage (shabby blue, blue fragmants).

I'm entering this card into the following challenges:
  1. Midweek Magnolias: Wish you were here with our seaside / beach creations
  2. Totally Tilda Challenges: TomBoy Tilda (no pink)
  3. Magnolia Down Under: Louise's choice (flowers)
  4. Deep Ocean Challenges: On the beach
Hugs, t.
