I just love this new set that I recently received from Mark's Finest Paper, called Tropical Vacation. They are actually having a challenge on their blog that is for silhouette cards that I will enter this in. It is half that so I am going to try it. I also used a technique that I am not super familiar with , which is direct ink to paper. I used some of my Dee Gruinig, Blending Blox in shades of turquoise, shades of orange, and shades of blue for the upper half of my card.I muddied up my ground with some chalk ink pads and then added touches of Copic markers to fill in and highlight areas. The front sentiment is from a set by Theresa Momber, called Hang In There. I repeated the birds on the inside circle and used sentiments from the SU set called Congrats!I hope you all had a wonderful holiday weekend. We did a yard sale on Fri. & Sat. Phew, too much work. Then my DH made me a little fenced in veggie garden. I may post about this later when the plants start to grow a bit. For now, I just want to get back on track with my challenges. Have a great day!
