Tropical Paradise!


This card was inspired by several challenges and I really enjoyed making it. The tropical beach FSE, has been entirely coloured using digital paper piecing. There is a tutorial on how to do this here. The papers I used to do this are:
  • funky collection no:2, paper 10
  • woodgrain effect, earth tones collection, papers 1, 4 & 6
  • polished stone pastels #1
  • polished stone brights #6
I've used the same funky collection paper as my main dp too. I've used some lovely white pearlescent paper for edged with a fiskars edge punch and the punched daisies have been punched from the same paper. The greeting is a See D's stamp embossed with white detail ep and embellished with a home made 'brad' and diamante gems. A satin ribbon that started off white and was coloured with cyan promarker finish it off.
I'm entering my card into these challenges (thank you for the inspiration) :
