Tilda and the beanstalk...

Good morning my lovely bloggers, I hope you are enjoying the joys of spring,(well here in the uk anyway!) isnt this weather just fab? It reached 21 degrees here yesterday, how long will it last, well as its the easter hols starting here on friday I guess by friday 3-30pm it will be back to the usual March weather! lol I am planning on getting started on my little bit of garden, I am planning to grow some veggies and fruit this year, not sure if they will survive the sea gulls though, we have had them nesting in an old building just behind our house for the last 2 years, they drive us mad as they insist on circling the house in the wee small hours squawking for several hours, and once the chicks get out onto the roof of the building they then started to dive bomb me when I was hanging out the washing!! So any advice would be gratefully received, I dont mind them nesting just dont want to get attacked by them!
ok enough of seagulls!
 I have a card to share today. I decided to make another tilda card, I am loving this collection sooooo much!! This one I have made uses the very cute beanstalk tilda and her beanstalk.
This is only the 3rd time I have masked images as I always struggle with it, and this is also the first time painting a scene with distress inks. I am fairly please with how it turned out.

Hi lovely,
The gulls are trying to protect their baby's. I don't know what you can do to stop them dive bombing?
WOW your card is wonderful, I would never have guessed that it was your first time colouring with the inks!
She looks wonderful on the beanstalk.
Love, Mel. xxx
