Magnolia Stamp Lovers – Summer theme

Here is our first creation using Tilda in Swimsuit. She is such a great stamp and is one of the older Magnolia stamps but she is so adorable!!

I used some summer themed papers, tulle and charms that I had in my stash. I also used my new Zutter Distrezz It All.  I love this little tool, it is so much easier on my wrists and it goes so much faster than using a hand held one! Be sure to stop by Stamping Scrapping and check it out ….. along with the Super MEGA sale that is going on right now.

I masked Tilda onto the innertube. I colored her with the following Copics:

  • Skin – E02, E00, E000, R20, Ro1
  • Innertube – R27, R24, R22, G7, G5, G2
  • Swimsuit – BG05, BG02, BG01
  • Hair – YR23, Y23, Y11
  • Water – BG13, BG11, BG10
  • White highlights – Copic Opaque White

Here is a pic of the charms.

And the inside. I used some more tulle and tied some twine around the center. I thought this would look really cool with sea shells or starfish but I didn’t have any of those. Imagine that, I didn’t have something ….. hmmmm, not good!

Be sure to come on over to Magnolia Stamp Lovers and enter your creation, the challenge is open until June 4th!
