Salute Tilda - All at Sea at Totally Tilda

*If you are looking for my blog candy please follow the link here*

Happy Sunday to all my followers and visitors both new and old, I hope you're all having a wonderful weekend and I'm so glad you took the time to drop by.

Today it's time for a new challenge over at Totally Tilda, and this time the theme is 'All at Sea'.
For this challenge we want to see your nautical or beach themed Tildas.

I chose to use Salute Tilda, and matched her up with some beautiful Pion papers. I've added links to products used, where I can, at the end of this post.

I coloured her up with my Inktense pencils, with a light distress ink style.  I do love these pencils, they're so versatile the way you can get different effects with them.  I'm afraid I don't have the colours for this one as I forgot to note them down, and I'm not as familiar with the colours yet like I am with my Copics. I must get into the habit of noting the shades I use when I'm colouring with them. If you're interested in trying these pencils for yourself, why not enter my blog candy here as I'm giving a set of them away.

The frame is an MFT one and the wave border is from La-La Land Crafts.  I added a little cheesecloth behind my layers, to simulate netting.

The inside is simply decorated with a design from the 6 x 6 sheet and a plain white frame for a message.

I hope you like her, do nip across to the challenge blog and take a peek at the rest of the team's makes, it's really worth your while.

I'd love to see you join in this challenge too our prize this week is
