Deep Ocean Welcomes Summer :)

Hi everyone, time for our new challenge at Deep Ocean, this fortnight our theme is 'Welcome Summer'.

This is one of my favourite Tilda's, and to me she is perfect to personify summer, out in the garden picking roses.

The papers are from Maja Designs Vintage Summer Basics. The edges have been distressed with a Tim Holtz tool, and then machine sewn with topstitch thread.

The flowers are from The Ribbon Girl, click on the images at the end to be taken to them in the shop.

I've also dabbed a bit of textured acrylic paint here and there, along with stickles. There is also glamour dust for sparkle and aged rose frantage too.

As always Tilda has been coloured with Distress Markers and reinkers.

  1. This is stunning Becky. The Tilda is adorable and I love all the gorgeous embellishments and design. I have to thank you for your Distress Marker tutorials. After looking at them I followed your techniques and have posted my first Distress Marker card today. First proper attempt but I am quite please with it. Thank you.
