I've used the lovely Little Cute Tilda from Magnolia Special Moments Collection and masked her with Tilda Mattress(Once Upon a Time Collection) coloured with Distress Inks, and Shabby Blue Frantage around the image.

I've used Magnolia DooHickeys So Wrapped Tilda Lace, Paris Night, and Shaped card edge is made with Tilda Envelope Edge.

So pretty papers and a large blue flower are also from Magnolia.

I've added clay embellishments - corner and circle frame. this pretty sentiment stamp is from Lili Of The Valley called Pretty Grungy - Good Times, which I put inside my own made clay frame.

The pretty lace, ribbon and embellishments are from The Ribbon Girl.

The Ribbon Girl July Colour Challenge

Hello everyone! How's your summer going? I hope you're all well and enjoying your summer!
What comes to mind when you think of summer? BBQ, the beach, fireworks, parties, yukata, watermelons, ice cream, and all that good stuff you look forward to!:)

Well, I'm here with my DT card for this month's Colour Challenge on The Ribbon Girl. Our colour theme this month is one of my favourite colour combos .. 'Blue and White'.

I have made a summery card using Dangling Sea Edwin from Magnolia Bon Voyage Collection,  i love this cute image! I have coloured with Distress Ink Pads and Distress Markers.

I hope you will be able to join us for this Challenge. We have lots of inspiration from the DT on the blog and a great pic to get you started, and these are the wonderful prizes you could win.

A £10 voucher from Lili Of The Valley.

A £10 voucher from Ribbon Girl.


I used Beaded Stamen White/White, Starburst Stamen White, White Seam Binding, Lily Flowers White, Tulip Flower White, 16mm White Lace & Pearl Trim, 'Elizabeth' White Flower Fine Cluny Lace, Cheesecloth(which I've coloured with Distress inks), 40mm Daisy White Mulberry all from The Ribbon Girl. (all links at the bottom of this post).

The vintage map stamp from Magnolia new collection 'Sea Breeze'. The papers are from Maja Design - Life by the Sea 6×6 paper pad, so pretty!

I created a cloud background on my cards using Copic airbrush system. It's quick and easy technique. If you have a cloud die cut (or scallop die cut) you can use that as template. (I used Fiskars cloud squeeze punch.) Place the mask on the image. Holding the die cut on your paper and airbrush (or blending tool / sponge) around the cloud edges, continue by moving it around and repeating. Super simple! I hope you will try this technique:)

Please head on over to The Ribbon Girl to check out the rest of the DT projects .. as always they are simply gorgeous! and For more details go across to the Ribbon Girl Blog HERE!
