I created a frame using the stamps and a bit of masking and joined up the stamping, cutting both the inside and outside away to create a frame. Behind my frame I have layered acetate and a leaf die cut screen (from Tonic). I though this added to the tropical feel. In the top corner I have stamped and layered the flowers for added depth.
Do love that Flamingo and the lily stamp. Don't they work beautifully together?
Open flower: cream, Indian red, light carmine & hookers green
Lilies: canary yellow, gold ochre & light carmine
Shadow: silver grey & medium grey
Flamingo: pink madder lake, medium flesh & rose madder lake
Palm leaves: emerald green, apple green & olive green
Lilies: Canary yellow, gold ochre, burnt carmine, light green & olive green
I even decorated the inside of my card to keep the tropical theme using the same colours/flowers.
Today I am busily moving my youngest son in to his Uni digs and feel it's going to be a long day! Let's say we were still packing at midnight .....! Catch up with everyone over the weekend as I intend to have a mega blogging session on Sunday.
