Reminder card for the Paradise of Stamps - Sea Captain Tilda

Good morning,

It's rather warm here in the south of the U.K. at the moment, but it's so lovely to see the sun shining.

I am popping in to share a reminder card for the current challenge at the Paradise of Stamps. Our current theme is:


I have coloured up the gorgeous Sea Captain Tilda again, but in a different colour way with DI reinkers.

Peeping out of the left hand side is a Marianne Anjas Vintage die cut. Whilst the card was still in the die I coloured it with a grey ink pad an slipped it underneath the papers.

The papers are by Pion (Ornament) and have been edged with white gesso paint. 

I've placed some cheesecloth underneath the image, I was going to buy some fishing net which I thought would look fab, but managed to refrain  from doing so this time....

The cute deck chair is a Signature die, which has been cut in coordinating papers and white card. In the right hand corner I've placed some shells, star fish and cute die cut flip flops again in coordinating papers.

The flowers, lace, twine and pearl string are from my stash.

DI list:
Skin: Vintage Photo, Tattered Rose, Picked Raspberry
Hair: Gathered Twigs, Walnut Stain, Grand Espresso
Top, Shoes and Cap: Hickory Smoke, Barn Door, Aged Mahogany
Shorts: Barn Door, Aged Mahogany
Crate: Gathered Twigs

This is the last post for a coupe of months as the DT are taking a well earned summer break, we will back in September.

Thank you for popping in.

Take care.
