On the beach with Frizzy Tilda for simply Magnolia

I don't think it's a secret that I love, love, love frizzy Tilda she's just sooo cute!!! :)
This fortnight over at Simply Magnolia we're all off to the beach!! with our fabby challenge of

On the beach!!

I masked no less than 4 stamps to create this scene! and was really pleased with it, and relatively happy with my colouring, and then...... eek what to do with the rest of my card! I decided to keep it simple, and truthfully I wish I hadn't added the banner, does anybody else find this, that it's actually putting the card together that is the problem?!?! I could colour till the cows come home but then find it so difficult to put the images into a card!!  It's not even colour matching the papers, I have learned my lesson with that one!! I nearly always chose my papers first now, it's embellishments that confuse the life out of me!! ;)
anyhoo the challenges I would like to enter are:

Tilda's Town - anything goes
7 Kids challenge - anything goes
Magnolia Mania - Summer
papertake weekly - jolly holiday
Have a great week my lovelies!

Frizzy Tilda in black and white

Hi all, hope you are all safe and dry!
 Thankfully it has stopped raining for a day or 2 at last, I was about to start building an ark!
Well it's time for another great challenge over at Simply magnolia This time we would love to see your
Now I have to stress that you can use colour on your stamped image, but all the papers and embellishments have to be black and white! When I started this card my intention was to create a pop if colour in Tildas Bows, but I have to confess I love colouring in black and white (always forget till I have to do it!!) and I was so pleased with the way the images looked that I decided to just leave it without colour! I have coloured the images with Toner greys T0,1,3,5,7 and used T9 to make the dots on her bows! I love playing with the different greys!The papers are Maja!  I love this combo of images! Frizzy Tilda is one of my all time favourite stamps and I just can't help but compare this card with another I made last year with a SLIGHTLY  different colour scheme!
He he, Slightly different hey!!!
So don't forget to pop over to Simply Magnolia to see all my talented teamies creations and join the fun of our BLACK AND WHITE challenge!
