I have chosen a Magnolia stamp called dangling sea Tilda

I have used distress ink mediums to colour the stamps and I have used a Tim Holtz Papillion stamp for the background which I cut from the vintage Box large die from Magnolia for the shape from Papermill linen card. The shells I had collected from a trip to Oban beach. The charms were a gift and the glitter inside the shaker made with the fuse tool is from Wild Orchid Crafts with a touch of frantage embossing powder inside too !!. The dies are from an early Magnolia doohickey club.
