Hello I hope your are enjoying your weekend, My Dear Friend Sandy From Live & Love Crafts Kindly invited me to Guest Design for her First Challenge over at Live & Love Crafts Inspiration and Challenge Blog. Sandy Has Been a Sweet Friend of mines for some time now and She just opened her Online Shop where she has many wonderful Shabby, Vintage craft supplies including Maja Design Papers, Pion Design and Riddersholm Design Papers, Have you seen them? So to Kick off the Start of her New Challenge Blog the First Challenge is NAUTIC, you can create whatever you heart desires as long as it fits the theme; scrapbook layouts, cards, tags, gift boxes, paper bags, altered items anything basically. One Lucky Winner will receive a Store Voucher to Live & Love Crafts, who doesn't love shopping!!!
Ok so now to My card, I used this Cute Tilda with Anchor, it matches the theme perfectly, don't you think?? The papers too, Maja Design "Life By The Sea" available at Live & Love Crafts.
I colored my image with Distress Reinkers, loved coloring this sweet Tilda. My doily I made using the Double Scallop Doily Die from Whimsy Stamps, ran it right thru my Cuttle Bug with no problem. The tag is also from Whimsy, this one is the Double Scallop Tag Die, did you notice how nice these two dies coordinate??
My flowers, Shabby Ribbon and Flower Stamens are all from The Little Boutique Etsy Shop. I also gave my flowers and the Fish Charm the Gesso Treatment to mute the colors a bit.
I hope you can join Live & Love Crafts on this New Challenge Blog, By the way you really have to check all the inspiration from the fabulous Design Team Sandy Has Put together, So much Talent in one team!! (Flower Stamens From The Little Boutique Etsy Shop)

Hi Patricia,
Thank you so much for joining us as a GDT for the first Live & Love Crafts' challenge, and also for your kind words. You totally nailed our Nautic challenge with this red-blue-white colour combo. Warming up for the 4th of July?!!!

Stunning colouring (I've been wondering if you had abandoned your Copics for the reinkers, because when I've seen your recent creations the images have had such soft tones). Will try to visit more often if time only allows it...

Un abrazo muy grande,
