Tilda In The Summer Rain - Totally Tilda DT Card

Good morning peeps,
I've had a very busy morning so far! I woke up thinking I hadn't seen my bow easy for a while (strange I know lol) so me being me had to shoot out of bed & start trashing my craft room trying to find it! I did blitz my craft room yesterday which is probably why I suddenly realised it was missing & I still can't find it! I hope I haven't thrown it out accidentally & I know it's going to bug me so I'll have to keep looking.

Did you see I'm a cover girl?  Our lovely Steph at Simon Says Stamp emailed me a while ago asking if I had a beach / sea themed card they could use in their advert on the back of Magnolia Ink, yaaaaayyyyyy lol. There was no time to make a new card as the deadline was so close so I scoured my blog and sent a couple of pictures of  cards I made last year & was so excited & honoured when Steph said they were perfect & they would use one :)

Right now on to business!
 Today is new challenge day at
& this fortnight we'd love to see your creations in
My lovely teamies have come up with the most gorgeous creations as always, pop over and take a peek.

I've had a bit of a confidence wobble with my copics so as you can see I've gone running back to my comfort zone and cracked open my distressed inks and have gone all pastel & distressed lol.
 Thanks to all my lovely friends for all your advice & encouragement with using the copics, being stubborn I am not giving up,  I will learn to use them properly lol.

Ingredients -
Flowers - Magnolia, Prima, Kort & Godt & stash
Sentiment - Magnolia

 I've added lots of picket fence crackle paint to the paper edges and all over the gorgeous butterfly and then sprinkled on some glamour dust while the paint is still wet.
I'm entering my card in the following challenges -
Sketch & Stash - fab sketch (new Tilda & papers),  Lollipop - inspired by a song ( singing in the rain), Pear Tree - sparkle, A Spoon Full Of Sugar - flowers, Magnolia Mania - punches, Fab n Funky - what'eva, Fun With Shapes & More - sparkle, Cute Card Thursday - embellish it, Just Magnolia - anything goes (opt lace), One Stop Craft - textures

That's all from me for today peeps, I'm heading back to my craft room to hopefully find my bow easy!
Thanks for stopping by & enjoy what's left of the weekend

  1. Hi Mandy, wow hunny such a lovely card!! And good for you covergirl, you must be soo proud! About the Copics, join the club, I'm struggling with them as well. Apart from having trouble with the colouring technique I'm finding it hard buying the right colours. Even though I try getting soft colours I end up getting dark en bold colours. Since I buy on the Internet you can hardly try them out first LOL! But like you, I'm not giving up! Hugs, Frea

  13. Huge congratulations Mandy but who wouldn't want one your beautiful cards to promote their stamps.
    I prefer the distress inks you colour with, copics appear to be very harsh and don't have the delicacy.
    You would be so proud of me as on Friday I took down all of my winter living room curtains ready to be dry cleaned and put up the summer ones, washed all the frames and cleaned all the windows. Collapsed on the bed and fell asleep for 2 hours.....lol Have a great Sunday and hope you find your bowmaker. You could use a fork and still get the same effect.... Hugs Annette x
