Tropical Tilda

Tilda has gone all tropical on me today.  I think she is imagining getting married in far flung places.
I principally started making this for the Magnolia Stamp Lovers dry embossed background challenge.  I had seen the idea in Magnolia Ink #3 of 2010 on a card made by Ying (completely different stamps and papers, but the idea was there, stamp and colour patterned paper and then emboss it).  I've used BasicGrey Periphery paper, stamped the Magnolia beach scene and then coloured with a combination of Aquamarkers and pencils.  The embossing folder is a Papermania one (slightly larger than some of the others I have so I was able to get more of the scene in).
Lady Tilda has been coloured with Distress Inks and the tropical blooms have been cut with a Sizzix Brenda Pinnick die.

Other challenges:
Magnolia-licious Highlites - Wedding march blog hop
A Spoon Full Of Sugar #153 - Wings, I think I counted 9 butterflies on there.
Moving Along With the Times #100 - Holidays
