Tilda's gone to the beach!

Tilda is at the beach celebrating Memorial Day. This weeks challenge at Tilda & Co. Challenge Blog is "Torn It". To tear your paper somehow on your card. Well this is one of my new Tilda's I ordered for summer, and she told me she wanted to go to the beach. What Tilda wants she gets! I started the card with a white card stock base. I used a piece of scrap blue card stock and scrap kraft brown card stock and tore piece and layered to create the ocean and the sandy beach. To high light the tears I inked with a cream color Color box catseye ink pad. Tilda is colored with my Copic Markers, white gel pen and stickled wings. The umbrella is a stamp from Stampourri! Inc. I stamped on a scrap piece of pattern paper, I think it is Conffetti paper. I stuck the handle of the umbrella into the "sand" and colored in the handle with a brown Copic Marker. The Chair and the plane are both from Rubbernecker. I stamped the chair with my Coffee Bean Brilliance ink then colored in and highlighted with Copic Markers. The plane I colored in with Spica Glitter Pens, it really sparkles in person. I love the banner that the plane is pulling. "Hope your day is full of Sunshine". Hubby said it needed some sea shells, so I found some Cloud Nine Rain Dots in white and drew on a sand dollar shape on them. I think it turned out pretty funny. Although the waves might be just a bit scary for Tilda to go to deep! Hope they like it at the challenge and Tilda arrived just in time to create this summer beach scene.

I still keep giggling at my new blog, Sara you really are fantastic! Don't forget my blog candy... you can find it HERE

I do hope that you have a chance to spend the Memorial day holiday with family, and take time to think of those that holiday is meant for. Those that have served their country and are currently serving. Have a great Monday!
