Beach days

Morning all!

Hope we are all well today? Beautiful weather here in Australia, still stuns me that this is winter. Its gorgeous. So this card was inspired by one of the things I love so much. As you guys know I am a huge beach fan just something about it its bliss. Whether rain or sun I never want to be too far from it, good for the soul...and the tan lol! Anyway back to the card!

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

Craft Heaven Shop Inspiration and challenge blog- Fun in the sun
Marvellous Magnolia Challenge blog- Anything goes
Simply Magnolia- Summer
lovely hAnglar or Sweet Magnolia- Anything goes
Time for a Magnolia Challenge- Anything but a square

Soooooo yes back to my beachy card! I used 'Bikini Tilda' from the older collection 'Sea Breeze' collection she is just delightful in her cute little two piece! The beach huts stamp is also from Magnolia and is the perfect backdrop for Tilda.

I coloured Tilda using Distress Inks. The papers....well I have had them a while I shall confess lol. The are from the Kaisercraft collection 'Tropicana' they are full of bright rich beachy tropical colours that really do make you feel very summery.

The dies are a mix of Go Kreate for the shape and Magnolia for the others. The letters are die cut from a Tim Holtz die.

I used some cheese cloth to add a bit more of a foam effect to the surf boards and bubbles acting as waves.

I sprayed the die cuts with 'Iridescent Gold' shimmer mist as this leaves such a beautiful golden sun baked look...perfect for beachy cards.

The final touch was some Kaisercraft rhinestones.

Hope you have a wonderful day.
