At the Beach with Tilda

Hi! It's the second Tuesday of the month and time for the Magnolia-licious Color ChallengeNorma's color challenge for today is 'black, white, and one other color'. You can see the Design Team's creations and  details of the challenge HERE. Don't forget about the prize Diana is offering.

Here is the image Norma provided for the color challenge.


For my card I chose to use blue as the third color to go with the black and white. As most of you know, I color the images with Copic markers, so for this card I used the 'C' (cool greys) series of markers. Using the cool greys along with the blues gave this card a monochromatic look. I chose silver-toned charms, corners, and white seam binding as embellishments to compliment the colors. The Magnolia stamps I used are #237 Beach Tilda and #612 Bathing Ring  from the Magnolia-licious store.



We hope you decide to participate in the color challenge at Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog. We really enjoy looking at your creations.

Thanks for stopping by. I appreciate your comments! Linda C

Gorgeous card Linda! Loooove the sentiment and your monochromatic colouring is simply stunning. The poem is perfect and makes me wish I could be at the beach to quietly sit to watch the waves. The charms and beautiful bow finish off the card so nicely. Hugs, Maria

Linda, you rock with this card. Your colouring of Tilda in B&W is awesome. Love the added colour of blue (LOL..my favorite colour) and it goes well with the B&W. The metal corners and charms are gorgeous. Love the card.
