Magnolia Splash Tilda Card

Hello Sweet Readers,

I have a quick post to share with you featuring the most adorable Tilda stamp from the 2013 Sea Breeze Collection. For my card, I chose to use Splash Tilda. I think she is just the cutest little thing! I guess it reminds me of our son every summer at the beach in Oregon. You can find her here. I paired her up with an older Magnolia sunset stamp by doing some masking to remove the elements on the background stamp I didn't want to include. I thought both stamps made a great pairing!

I wanted to add some elevation and did so by elevating the clouds and the sentiment tag on pop dots. I also added some texture paste to the "splash" around Tilda's head. There is soe glitter on the ends of the "splash" as well providing some sparkle. Here is a closeup.

Here is a photo of the flower grouping. I filled the corked bottle with teeny tiny shells which I have saved over the years.

The last photo is of the tag. I have soooo much "stuff" that I love when I get to use up things I've had in my supplies for a long time. The alphas were old and added some additional color.

Also used on this card are the following dies available at Magnolia-licious:

Magnolia Doohickey #4 - Leaf and Swirl Die

Magnolia Doohickey #86 - Tilda Envelope Edge

Memory Box Puffy Clouds #98172

I hope you like my creation. I wish you could see the sparkle I created in the splash around Tilda's head.

Thank you so much for stopping by. Thank you for the comments you leave for me. I treasure each and every one. (((hugs)))

Light and Love,
