Tilda in Key Largo

OK time for a card...I had colored up this cutie awhile ago.It was time to add her to a card.She's from magnolia called Tilda in Key Largo from the Summer Memories release. I used Magnolia papers..unsure of which line lol. It looks more blue but it's actually a teal turquoise color. Much like the flowers I used lol. the chipboard flourishes are from Kaisercraft. 

Careful I am on a chipboard love relationship right now.I love to paint ,spray, ink ,emboss ,whatever it will take lol. 
I'm pretty sure though the seahorse is from girlfriend sent it to me lol.
The flowers are a mixture of Prima and WOC.  

Hope you enjoyed ! TTYL

Oh Snap !

Ok I'm back with the infamous picture from yesterday lol. This layout screamed for me to use Bo Bunny's Mama Razzi 2 .I am loving this line.I did only use one sheet of paper lol but I did use the sticker sheet, Bo Bunny blooms and the stamps for this layout. 

I also used some chipboard embellishments from Studio Calico and Kaisercraft I believe. The edges of the paper I used Stampendous Shabby Green embossing enamel.It's a little time consuming putting on but worth it.Love the vintage look. 

I used my TH stencil for a few "addings" using his distress picket fence paint.There's also a Bo Bunny Doilies above the picture.I cut just a top piece off and added it .I added decor with some cheesecloth as well around the pic.

BE original...

OK sorry it's been a bit since I've posted.It's been the "end of summer" rush .Getting ready for kids to go back to school.Have you ever heard a more beautiful sentence ? haha. I've got one in grade 5 and the other in 12 . This year will be busy with grad,I'm sure of it. 

So I did play..I've been in the I don't wanna make a card mood. So I got inspired by Gabrielle P and her video of her mixed media canvas. So this is what I made...lots of layers and texture :) I had a whole lot of fun getting inky and stained lol. 

I'll be back and show you a layout I did using the same pic.I do love this picture lol.

Enjoy !
