Summer Fun at Tiddly Inks

*waves* It's that time of the week again.. we've got a brand new challenge for ya over at Tiddly Inks!! It's also August 14th, which for you hardcore Tiddly fans will know is RELEASE DAY!! We got a heap load of goodness for you all today, let me tell ya! ;)

So first things first. New challenge.

This could be just about anything to do with sunshine-y weather! Swimming, BBQs, sweet treats, whatever you'd like to show us!! I've gone with a beach theme and used Wryn - Beach Babe. Naturally ;) Living by the coast, there is nothing better than a trip to the beach on a warm day to feel the sea breeze on your face!

I've used loads of little layers in the form of tickets and patterned paper scraps from My Minds Eye Howdy Doody collection. I've coloured Wryn up with my ProMarkers and FlexMarkers to match. I've stamoed a sentiment from an Amy R set in Melon Mambo ink.

Aside from Wryn, the star of the show on this card has gotta be that handmade pinwheel. I have wanted to have a go at one of these for ages, and this seemed like the perfect kinda project. I guess you gotta use double sided paper for this, so some yummy MME paper was perfect. I've added a little coral button which I've threaded with yellow bakers twine across the section where the four corners meet. They're so quick and easy to make, but the really pack a punch. A few smaller ones in different sizes would looked cute in that corner too! Can you feel the sea breeze blowing that pinwheel around? Heehee.

Okay.. so I've waffled enough about this card me thinks. Any questions, just shout! :)
