Surf's up for Tilda

Hi blog stalkers, he he.  I am so lucky to have made so many amazing friends in cyber space, thanks to this blogging lark.  On Monday i recieved a tag in the post to say that i had something waiting for me at the post office, well automatically you know its gotta be something exciting, well i didnt waste a minute, raced up there and lo and behold i got these GREAT Tilda's that i have been dying for since their release but never have been able to get till now.  My friend Penni whom i have never met only chatted to via email and our blogs, offered to send them to me when i was going on about loving them on an email to her.  How generous is that?
So now that i have waffled enough, here is the card its taken me a coouple of days to put together with my new stamps, between interruptions and phone calls and fetching and shlepping kids, FINALLY!
I followed the sketch on sketch Saturday, you will notice that i have taken one of my photos at a funny angle, because i added some spica over her legs and it shimmerz as if they really are below the surface of the water.  I had to add some flowers to this enseble and i also used the flower that i was making when i showed you how i make them.  I added a second image to the inside of my card with some catchy summer/ beach phrases.
MMMMmmm, just noticed i cna enter this into the Roses on paper challenge too, they want layers, lots of layers happening here!


  1. What a great card. Love the little fishes and all the sparkles.

  2. Oh my goodness, Paola! You are one remarkable artist! This card is just stunning, I love absolutely every single detail on this card, inside and out! What a fabulous job coloring your Tilda's and the water over her legs is so cool! Fantastic job...hugs...Barb

  4. Very cute card. I haven't received my kit yet either and I live in the Midwest USA.

  5. Hi Paola!
    I love your card. These Tilda's are perfect for where I live on the Sunshine Coast of Australia. A real surfing area.
    I love the way you have colored her on the board. Her wetsuit looks really shiny and the one where she is carrying her board is gorgeous. I love the colours you used and the little fish are a nice additive. Very clever how you got her legs to look like they really are in water. Super.
    Hugs Marion
