Totally Tropical ...

Hi Everybody,

Do you remember a few weeks ago some cards with the Totally Tropical Gift that came free with Papercraft Essentials 135 ??

I also did a video to give you some ideas on how to use the die and stamps and here is another one for you to try using just the stamp and water colours

I have used a separate panel to stamp the pineapples onto and heat embossed them in white.

Then with Gansai Tambi I have coloured each one in bright tropical colours.

The "Thanks" is a die  from Altenew and I bought mine from Sevenhills Crafts

There is also a  matching stamp  set to go with it which makes it a very useful addition to my "Stash"

The panel was added to my base card once everything was dry and the finished card is the US A2 size. This card was inspired by Laura Bassen one of my favorite YouTubers who works wonders with inks

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx

  5. Hi Christina,
    This is just what I need to brighten up the day today. Our local weatherman told us it was going to be a scorcher today...he lied!!! At least he got all the rain yesterday right lol. It's dry right now but so dark and dismal that multi coloured pineapples are just the thing to add some sunshine. I think I'm going to have a play with this one myself :)
