Beach Babe

It’s time for a new challenge over at ABC Challenges.

Our challenge for you this time is ‘W is for Water’.

Our sponsors for this challenge are Marianne Design and The Ribbon Girl.

I’m going with a beach theme for my card and have used the very cute ‘Playing on the Beach Tilda’ from Magnolia.


I’ve printed my image onto Cryogen White cardstock and coloured with Copic Markers.

The colours I’ve used are as follows: E11, E00, E000, R20, R30, E57, E55, E53. E50, W00, BG05, BG02, BG01, YR68, YR65, YR61, YR24, YR23, YR21, E42, E41, E40,

Here’s a closer look at the image.


The papers I’ve used are from the ‘By The Sea Collection’ from Graphic 45. I just loved the colours in these. The dies are from the Doohickey Club 1. I’ve added some Shabby Blue Frantage to the dies cuts and also to one of the papers. My sentiment is computer generated and cut out on my Silhouette Cameo.


Stamps: Playing on the Beach Tilda (Magnolia), Sentiment (Computer generated)
Card: Naturals White (Stampin’ Up), Cryogen White cardstock
Papers:  Beachcomber - By the Sea Collection (Graphic 45)
Ink & Markers: Sahara Sand (Stampin’ Up)
Dies & Punches - Doohickey Club 1 (Magnolia), XXL Square Frames Frilly #6 (Go Kreate)
Accessories:  Basic Jewels – Pearls (SU), Shabby Blue Frantage (Live & Love Crafts), Lace (from stash)
