Having a Paddle


I haven't had a play with my Tilda stamps for ages so as the sun is shining brightly what better stamp to have a play with than Tilda in the Sea.  I stamped her onto watercolour paper and then watercoloured her with Koh-i-noor paints, adding a bit of Sakura stardust pen to the water to make it sparkle.  The bg paper is from DCWV Pocket Full of Posies which also has a bit of it's own sparkle but I've added some extra in the form of stitches although I'm afraid they don't show up too well in the photo.  I've used my Martha Stewart Scallop Dots punch on the white card layer.  I cut and matted my image using Nestabilities Labels Ten and ran the matt through the cuttlebug using the D'vine Swirls folder.  I've finished off the card with a lovely spotty ribbon, pearls, reindeer moss and three little sea-themed buttons.

Beautifully coloured! Love the lo, just so sweet. The buttons really finish it off as does the 'reindeer' moss. What on earth is reindeer moss anyway and where can I get some?
