Totally Gorjuss (GDT) - Water... water...

Happy Saturday everyone and welcome to another challenge at Totally Gorjuss.  Have we got a lovely challenge for you this week...  We'd love to see you make a creation with WATER!

I was really stumped with this one... didn't have a clue what I was going to do, but then my friend Paola reminded me of this cute little Tilda that's been collecting dust in my Magnolia box.  Hope you like her...

Patterned paper is from my Wilson & Maclaghan range again.... just love them!  This Miss Tilda is called BeachTilda.  I have been practising the masking technique.  The rock and grass stamp is from a local company, Great Impressions, purchased from Merrypak.

And here is a side view to give you a peek at the inside of the card, which I like to decorate.  The sentiment is one of Lili of the Valley's.  The card candy is from Crafty Emma's Store and the ribbon from... uhhh, not sure, but isn't it a lovely colour...LOL

I added a little bit of Rangers Stickles, Stardust purchased from Paola's Store to make the water stand out!  Nesties are from Spellbinders range of nesties.

Thanks for popping by.  We hope to see you at the challenge.  Take care, hugs Sharon x


My friend Paola has some awesome Candy on offer.  You'd better hurry along to her Blog to enter... See pic in my side bar... good luck!

Sharon, What a beautiful card. I just discovered Magnolia myself can't wait to color one in. I found your site on the looking for followers forum on Outlawz. I am new to the blogging world, so this tool is great for me and I get to see so many inspirational projects.
