Vintage beach wear

Hiya all!

Hope everyone is ok? Its a gorgeous day here in the Pilbara, not a drop of wind. Perfect.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges-

All about Magnolia Challenge Blog- Summer
Craft Heaven Shop Inspiration Challenge blog- Bingo- Full house
Deep Ocean challenge blog- Summer
Paradise of Magnolia- Anything goes
Paradise of stamps- Anything goes

Well I thought I would finally try something that I have been wanting to do for a while but been really nervous about it- black and white colouring with Distress inks. When i received my Maja collection 'Sommartider' and saw the black and white papers with the beach things on that was it! knew I had to do it!

So for this card I used 'Tilda on the beach' from Sea Breeze collection. I coloured Tilda using Distress inks. I edged around the card with Distress ink 'Pumice Stone'. The only spots of colour are on her hat and her cheeks.

I used a die for my feathers and that is from Magnolia. All the other dies are also Magnolia. To tie in with the red I used some red thread on the grey glitter buttons and some read flowers.   Used a red die cut of a bow for the bow aspect along with shabby seam biding at the top tied into a bow, where the charm is attached. The charm is a little pair of sunglasses.  I use some lace from Live and Love Crafts.

For the pearls I added a flat back pearl button to the middle of the bow which has awesome bling around it. This is also from Live and Love crafts.  I added a pearl pin also.  For more bling I added some red rhinestones.

The flowers are from the fabulous WOC.

I hope you like our vintage beach!
