No Flowers for Tilda :(

Over at the Ooh La La Challenge blog this fortnight the theme is "Nothing Floral" so I couldn't use my favourite "Shoes in bloom" CD this time and I had to rack my tiny brain to come up with this creation, so here on my DT card I have used a fab image from the "Water colour Memories"CD
This CD now comes a close second favourite for me it has so many lovely water colour images from around the world, they are great to use alone and perfect for use with other stamps too just like I have done here.
Both the image stamps and the sentiment and the background stamp are all from Magnolia coloured with Copic markers
I used the Tulle to represent a fishing net with the fish charm and sea pearls on the pin caught up in it !! lol
And the crafty crab charm on the piece of rope adds a little humour I thought !!
I hope you like it and I hope you will pop over to the Ooh La La Challenge blog and join in the fun you don't need to use Ooh-La-La products to join in the challenge but if you have then we would love to see them in your creations.
I've entered it into the "Anything goes" challenge over at the Just Magnolia challenge
