It’s time for a new challenge at Seize the Birthday! The Toppings option for our 191st challenge is “Totally Tropical”. But as always you may enter any birthday themed projects into our gallery, if you want!
First I thought of hibiscus or other tropical flowers. But when I was searching on Pinterest to get some inspiration, I saw some drawing of tropical leaves and decided to give it a try.
I drew some palm leaves on a corner of a watercolor paper and made an ocean scene behind the leaves using Ocean Free stamp set by The Ton. I white heat embossed the ocean, watercolored the ocean and the beach and wrote the words in the sand in darker brown.
The light aircraft and the banner from City Girls: Park Life set (The Ton) was stamped in gray and watercolored. I cut them using the coordinating dies. The sentiment on the banner was from City Girls: Special Day set. I cut the colored panel using a die from Rectangle A2 Nested dies set (The Ton) and adhered it on a kraft cardbase. I then added the aircraft and the banner using foam tape.
I finished off the card by stamping the seagulls in black.
Is my card totally tropical 🙂 ? I hope I could inspire you with my card!
Thank you so much for looking!
Have a crafty day!
