Summer Beach Tilda

Hi there! How are you doing? I hope you are very well.
How did you spend your summer vacation? I had a long summer vacation and visited my parents' house. There was a fireworks display being held just close by, so i enjoyed the fireworks with my family. There were so many people who were wearing Yukata. I regretted it very much because I didn't wear Yukata for the event. The fireworks were really pretty!  There were no buildings to interrupt our views, so we were able to enjoy the fireworks to the fullest. I was happy that I could see the wonderful fireworks together with my parents this summer too. If you have any stories or memories from your summer vacation please let me know:)

Well, I'd like to show my card that I've used Summer Beach Tilda from Magnolia Sea Breeze Collection 2013 and masked her with Bathing Ring(Lazy Summer Collection 2009) coloured with Distress Reinkers.

I have added Powder Blue Fragments and Steel Blue Glass Glitter.

  1. great well done, thanks for joining in at YMAM

  2. Amazing Card! Love all the Details!
    Thanks for sharing at magnolia mania!
    Hugs Andrea

  3. はろはろ、Yuriさん、ごきげんようぅ〜♪
    日本の夏、浴衣に花火、ステキですね〜♪ワタシも夏祭り、花火がとても懐かしいです…。ワタシの周辺では特に何も変わったイベントはありませんでしたが、7/4日の独立記念日には家のリビングからpee-ka-boo花火が見る事が出来ました♪(^.^;)" ほんの少しでしたけれども、遠くにあがる花火でした。それでも、聞き慣れない花火の音に、うちの小梅(チワワ)はブルブル震えて可哀想でした。すっかり雷や花火の大きな音に怯えるようになってしまって、雷の多い夏は小梅にとってはビクビク不安な夏です。トホホ。
    本題のコチラのカード、ひゃ〜っ、マタとっても素敵なBeach Tildaちゃんですね♪(^o^)/" あまりの全体的な美しさにいつもPCを拡大しまくって拝見しています(^o^;)""" このディストレスリインカーが水性で水彩色鉛筆と似ていて、極細筆や細い平筆を使ってとても使いやすそうでいいな〜♥と興味津々なのですが、今でもコピック、Spectrum Noirのアルコールマーカーも諦めきれずに数ヶ月が経ちそうです。まだ悩んでるの?と飽きれてしまうでしょ〜?(^o^;)"自分でも決めきれずにガックリです。 デモ、どうしても両方が魅力的で決められないので結局は先行き両方欲しいと思うのです。ディストレスマーカーの49色の方がお値段的には優しいので後でも買えるかな?と思い、最近、ちょっと手の出しにくいcopicの方を先に買ってしまおうかと…。Yuriさんのおっしゃっていたように、セットじゃなくてもグラデーションで選んで単色で買ってもステキですね、きっと♥
    そして、マタ、新しいデザインチームご就任、おめでとうございま〜す♪p(^o^)q""" Wow, WORLD WIDEでお忙しくなりましたね〜♪素晴らしい〜〜〜♪♪♪

  6. Beautiful card Yuri - congratulations on joining the Creative Romance Team!! My favourite part of our summer vacation was visiting Sorrento in Italy while on holiday with my daughter Andrea for a week, we had a lovely time. Yuri, what is a Yukato, I don't know what that means? hugs from Mary x

    1. Hello Mary, Thank you for your sweet comment!
      Yukata is a casual type of the Japanese Kimono(traditional Japanese clothing), usually made of cotton. Many people wearing it at fireworks displays or festival in summer months. It's as beautiful as kimono and one of the representative items of Japan. If I have another chance to wear it, I'll post the pics.;)

      It seems that you had a very lovely vacation with Andrea! I'm glad to hear that! I can just imagine how much you enjoyed the precious time. Big hugs xx

  7. Another stunning card Yuri, love your inspiration. Wish I could only colour as well as you.
