Beachy Tilda

Happy Tuesday! It has been such a busy weekend, I had to take yesterday to regroup and chill out! We had friends visiting for the weekend as well as my 7 year old's swimming birthday party.

I have not made a ton of summery card this summer, so I thought I would get crackin' before summer is over!
For this card, I used Beach Tilda, Beach Fence, and Bridge Deck stamps from Magnolia Stamps. The base paper is from Bazzill and the DP is some new Basic Grey Olivia available over here. I used some flowers from Wild Orchid. I used white flowers and airbrushed them with my Copic Air Brush System with some R21 Copic marker. The leaf punch is my new Nellie Snellen Floral Branch punch. I am in love with this new punch!! The sentiment comes from a PTI Limited Edition set. I used Nestabilities to cut out the sentiment and the stamped image. I used the Lattice Border punch from Martha Stewart.
For the stamped image, I did lots of masking. I stamped the Bridge Deck and masked it off to airbrush the sand and water, again with my Copic ABS. Then, with it still masked off, I stamped the Beach Fence and masked it off to airbrush the sky. Tilda was colored with Copics, cut out and layered using dimensional adhesive. Below are the Copics I used.

Hi Tori, thanks for all your help today trying to help me get my pictures resized on my blog. As I was looking around your blog last night I saw this adorable little Beach Tilda & LOVED it. Your card & work are just so darn amazing ...
I opened my "Album" of Tildas to see if I had a stamp I might use to make a similar card. I didn't know whether to be embarrassed or totally excited when I not only found the SAME stamp, I also have the fence, the bridge deck with water AND I knew I had that same PTI sentiment ... I do !!
I laughed at myself !!! I have more supplies than some craft stores & totally love this crazy addiction ... I'm sure I'm not alone ...
Hugs, Janie
