Hi Everyone, it's time for The Outlawz Paper A La Mode Challenge. Our theme this week is Tropical and our sponsor is Sassy Designs. My first attempt at this tropical theme ended in putting the card away for a while, maybe forever. I showed it to Donna and she said, "Wellll, it's not ugly, it's just doesn't look like you, Mom." You know after that I wasn't about to present it for Design Team work.
So I set about trying to find a tropical image. A lot of them had a lot more coloring than I had time for. Plus the pain in my hand from the shingles, it's hard to work some times. I found inspiration from a card I saw on the internet by Scrappy Chick. Here is my version.
5X6.5 card base
Background Papers - Reflections Designer paper, cardstock, & Digital Paper by Far, Far Hill
Image - Coconut tree by Sweet n' Sassy
Sun - Cut file from the Silhouette Online Store
Sentiment is Computer Generated
Promarkers used to color image:
Leaves - Forest Green, Leaf Green, Lime Green
Coconuts - Walnut, Terracotta
Tree Trunk - Tan, Cocoa
I hope you will venture over to The Outlaws and join in our challenge. And please leave a comment to let us know you are visiting. We love to read them God bless you!!!! Peggy
