Sea Shore Fun ~ Tilda With Sea Shell

There is nothing like a fun day at the sea shore looking for sea shells.
Tilda here is having way too much fun..

I gave the bg papers a tri cut look and that was fun to do.
I found this new ribbon at our Micheals store for a pretty water illusion.
Also found this neat bag of sea shells on sale and could not resist them for my cards.
I used a string of beads around the top shell to give the essence of shinny rocks in the water.

I used Copic pens to Color Tilda.
Skin, E00 E11 R81,  Hair E31,35 & 37, Shell E70 & R20.
Water B000 & B01, Swim dress R37 & R83.
Stippled Brocade Blue for the sky from SU ink pad.
Flowers and beads from my stash.

I may be quiet for a few days, as I have surgery this Tuesday. Do pray for me
that all will go well and I will be cancer free.
Your friendships and prayers are much appreciated.

Blessings to all
