Tilda~Blue~My Fav.things...birthday card


















I received another box from Guam, more of my stamp collection :-) This porthole stamp is one of those stamps which JUST arrived here :-) I'd been wanting to make a Birthday card for Audrey B. from Magnolia group I belong to, cuz she made me a BEAUTIFUL Japanese Tilda card for my birthday, and her birthday is coming. I also wanted to make a card for Magnolia Stamp Lovers' "Blues" challenge. I had another image, already colored in blue but after receiving this porthole stamp a couple of days ago, I changed my mind, and used my new addition, MINI Tilda Mermaid stamp. Good thing I did, cuz I just learned that at Just Magnolia blog, the latest challenge is "my fav.things", and One of my Fav. things is anything to do with the Beach/Ocean!! Esp. now, it's sooo tooo coooold here, and I miss my islands lives very much...when I'm making beach/summer cards, I'm very happy! :-) About my card...on the front, I attached stamped image of porthole with 3D pop up glue dots, after I used nesties to cut out the circle from the center of this stamped image, and other layers. I also cut the transparent sheet to make a "window", but when I took a pic. of inside of the card, because of this "window", you can see the reflection of my camera...lol... Inside of the card, I stamped Mermaid tilda, colored with watercolor pencils and glitter. For water bubbles, I used plastic stickers & glossy accent. I put some space between tilda and sea shells, to write the message to Audrey.
