PTI - January 2016 Blog Hop

The first thing I thought of when I looked at the picture was surfboards, so used this Aloha stamp set to make this card.  Stamped the surfboards in Versamark and embossed in white.  Then used Orange Zest, Terracotta Tile, Hawaiian Shores & Tropical Teal to sponge on the images and background.  Then used the Bokeh technique with Sketched Shapes in H/A Unicorn ink.  The  banner is Stitched Pink Edge Label.

  14. I wondered if someone would use surfboards because that as my first thought after seeing the inspiration photo. However, I sold Aloha quite awhile ago so had to think outside the box. Great card with a tropical feeling, Linda!
