Hello Everyone! Doesn't this card make you want to pack your bags, grab a passport and head for the tropics? I had such a good time making this card. I used several mask layers and sponged the entire background. I started by die cutting an oval shape, using a nestie die. I then sponged the sky with bashful blue, the ocean with marina mist and the beach with soft suede. It's kind of subtle, but I used the spritzer tool and a soft suede marker to give a little texture to the sand. The palm tree, from the Tropical Party stamp set-SU, was inked using chocolate chip and old olive markers and stamped onto the beach. The margarita drink sparkles from yellow stickles. Don't the palm fronds look great on the corners? I added a couple of pink flowers for a splash of color. Thanks for stopping by today.
