Pink Ink # 4, Just Magnolia # 121 and BG Challenges #51...Happiness!

Hi stampin' friends! This morning I have a card to share that I made yesterday for 3 challenges. I followed the great sketch that they have at Pink Ink Sketch Challenges by Cheri. I also played along with the Bingo Challenge at Just Magnolia and hAngler sTangler. I love Bingo Challenges and for my card I used the diagonal line, Gems, Flowers, Lace and Ribbon and finally I used some gorgeous BasicGrey Oxford 6x6 papers so I would like to enter my card in the Anything Goes Challenge at BasicGrey Challenges

I started out colouring up this image, Tilda Gone Fishing, using the No Black Lines technique that is everywhere in blogland and looks so gorgeous! It is really tough to do though and I ended up tossing the image in the bin it was so terrible. I will try again and hopefully I will end up with something worth putting on a card. I had to colour up another image of this sweet Tilda and went with lines this time, lol! I am not into fishing but for some reason I just adore this image. I coloured Tilda with my Copics and did that spotted background around her with some Warm Grey Copics. I also inked with Pumice Stone Distress ink.


I love the BasicGrey Oxford papers they are such beautiful papers and I love the colours. I used some Melissa Frances rub-ons for the sentiments and the one on the image says....A bad day fishing is better than a good day at work! I suppose that is true even if you aren't much into fishing, he, he, he. I added a few small flowers, some brown seam binding and cotton lace trim and a sprinkling of blue gems.
Here is the inside....pretty simple. The sentiment is from the MFT More Essential Sentiments set.

Well, Thanks so much for stopping by and having a wee peek at my card! 

Hope you have a stampin' great day!

I love your colouring of her & especially that dotty background which picks up on the largest background paper panel. Your layering is lovely - especially with those deep reds highlighting the bright ones in your colouring. I do love your insides.
