TROPICAL PARADISE

Doesn't this make you want to go and lie on a beach somewhere? I used a technique on this card that I have wanted to try forever. I stamped my images with Stazon on acetate and then colored the back side with Copics and added Stickles. I am entering this card in the Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge. I also entered it in the Roses on Paper Challenge and The Creative Inspirations Challenge.



I used three stamps by Great Impressions. I stamped the fish, masked it, stamped the plant, masked it, and stamped the sand and shells. On the outside of the acetate, I have the fish a little google eye and the bubbles are Rain Dots by Cloud 9. I finished off the card with sheer ribbon and a gold fish charm. I didn't do as many layers as I normally do, because the design did not call for it. The three panels are popped up and then I popped up the image.



The DP is so pretty I was able to keep the inside simple. I cut at the yellow shell with cardstock and chalked it, which makes a nice place to write a short note.

Thank you for looking at my card.
