Posh Picnic

We had some summer weather!  I got the paddling pool out quick and have some lovely photos to scrap with all the beachy, summery lines I've been buying.  Now though, summer's over with and we are back to rain and digging out the duvet.  So to cheer us up, here is a little love note from Tilda, to invite you to join her for a posh picnic.
I said on my video that I wanted to try combining this little basket from the July Scrapagogo kit with Magnolia images and, as the theme this week at Just Magnolia is 'In the country', I thought it must be picnic time.  I've gone for extreme masking to make this little scene using Noble Tilda, a Magnolia tree, and Papermania bench with champagne bottle.  I was looking for demo ideas for my next video and I think masking needs to go on the list.
I've coloured everything with Copics and added a little Bisque Liquid Pearls for sparkle and dimension.
The note card is made from the appropriately named Websters Pages Sunday Picnic collection in the Poppy Fields design, that came in the Scrapagogo kit. I've cut it right from the bottom of the page to include the branding strip so that it looks like layering.  The little love note in the corner is a printed digi from Elle's Studio with a little glossy accents added to the heart.

Challenges:
Just Magnolia #167 - In the country
Oldie But A Goodie - Summer inspiration, champagne cocktail anyone?  All of the stamps apart from the picnic basket are over 6 months old.
Totally Tilda - Summer Fun
Ladybug Crafts Ink - Summer Fun
Try It On Tuesday - Anything goes
