Tropical Heat Wave

Hello All! 

I am getting tropical again today, using the Great Faith Stamp and Die Duo from Divinity Designs. While I am getting tropical on the blog, it is getting tropical outside- around 85 today!
I like to get inspiration from the internet when the MOJO is lacking.  That is exactly what I did on this card~

I love how this turned out.  My inspiration came from this artwork~

My plan was to watercolor the background but that just did not turn out.  Some days I feel like I water color like Rembrandt.  Other days I feel like I color like a kindergartener!  
I stamped the singe hibiscus image in Ranger Archival ink, Manganese Blue, on my background panel.  I colored in the stamens with a red prismacolor pencil.  
Next, I stamped the single hibiscus and colored it with Copic markers and die cut it out with the coordinating die.  I then spritzed some mixed media paper with yellow and orange ink sprays.  From that I die cut a Delicate Doily.   The sentiment was stamped on a panel that had been die cut out using a Pierced Rectangle Die.  The card was assembled, with a strip of polka dot paper from the Birthday Brights Paper Pad.  
I am linking up to Just Add Ink~ I have used both pencils and patterned paper. 


Thanks for stopping by!
