Magnolia - licious challenge - Water Water Everywhere

Hey eveyone! Oh my goodness, it's already June 1st!!!! I can't believe how quickly the time goes anymore. Seems like I blink my eyes and the month is over. Kinda scary when ya think about it, ya know??  Anyway, it's time for a new challenge from the Magnolia-licious Design team, and this month our hostess is my friend and wonderfully talented Mindy! And Mindy has challenged us to use water in our project.  So here is what I've come up with for the challenge. Now I have to tell you, as soon as I saw this adorable new Tilda, I knew exactly what I wanted to do with her! Luckily the stamp I wanted to use her with was in the correct direction, and it worked like a charm!

I kept the card very simple, first because the images were so large that I really didn't have any room to add a bunch of embellishments, and really I didn't want to detract from the scene at all. I wanted it to be all about Tilda reeling in poor Edwin. (Is it my imagination or does the look on his face say "oh crap!!") LMBO! Anyway, I used #269 Hooked Tilda along with Dangling Sea Edwin and #600 Boat. They're stamped with Memento ink onto X-Press It cardstock and then colored with Copic markers. Little Edwin is hanging from an anchor in his normal state, so  I just fussy cut him out and away from the anchor. The center cloud is a Magnolia Doohickey die, #30 Flag and Cloud.

Please pop over to Magnolia-licious Highlites to check out all my DT Sisters fabulous projects, and to see how you can join us in the challenge for a chance to win an awesome prize from Diana at Magnolia-licious! Thanks for stopping by to see me today and hope to see you back here again tomorrow for a new Kraftin' Kimmie challenge! Hugs!
