Midweek Magnolias - Midway Reminder


Hello, Friends! This is my post for the Midway Reminder for Midweek Magnolias – Fancy Folds challenge going on until next Tuesday. So you have a whole week to make something with Fancy Folds and enter for a chance to win a Mystery Prize from Magnolia Sweden. 

 
My Fancy Fold is actually on the inside of the card. I decided to make a 3 step card.  

 
The front features “Playing on the beach Tilda” from the NEW Sea Breeze collection which is available in the Magnolia-licious store. I colored Tilda with Copics and also colored an ocean beach background. I need a little more practice at freehand of ocean water as you might tell. But it’s good enough for my card. I used the rope knot stamp from the Fish Kit over one of my designer papers from Maja Designs. I thought it could use a little enhancement to go with my theme. 

 
The inside features “Salute Tilda,” the “Sea Shell Kit,” and “It’s Summer Time” sentiment also from the Sea Breeze collection 

 

 
Here’s a close up of Tildas.
 
I hope my card inspires you to join us with Fancy Folds of your own at Midweek Magnolias. Have a great week. 

Hugz,

oh no, your ocean doesn't need more practice, it's so beautiful!! i've been looking at it in close up, it's superb, colours, lines of waves give a moving feel to it (hum, not sure i'm clear here, looks like it's moving). you made white bubles on the sand that has darker spots, it's so great i love love it so much i feel immersed in this image.
but how did you paint the background ? is it a mask technique ?? have you considered making tutorials ??? :)))
