Summer Fun Tilda..

Happy Sunday, is the sun shining for you,  hope so its been a lovely wk here at the seaside..
which is where Tilda & Edwin are playing by the sea shore.. but before I start on me DT creation
many thanks for all your stunning Tilda with Magnolia sentiment creations..hop over to
see if your a winner.. The theme for the nxt 2 wks is “SUMMER FUN TILDA”
All we want is to see TILDA having some Summer Fun our generous sponsor for this chall is
I decided Tilda needed a playmate at the beach, Edwin being the gent he is accompanied her..
you can use an EDWIN image as long as TILDA is also on your creation  
think Tilda has lost the boat she looks a bit forlorn with the anchor in her hand..
I love this colour combo & decided it was time I used the Serif craft artist programme on me comp.
Set to work & came up with this back ground..not bad for me 1st attempt. there’s a lovely beach hut
& lighthouse & gorgeous sky..the sandcastle, bucket & spade at the bottom is me new EK success punch..
Tilda image is masked with Edwin coloured with markers & prismas..mat & layered with blue/red card.
the SUN banner is SB dies..the life ring is made from SB circle dies & ribbon/white twine..
Iv’e used a brass coloured star fish charm & glass bottle of Gold dust..just kidding,lol
I tried using real sand but it was dirty looking.. so Gold embossing powder it is..
