Tropical Blooms

Hello and Welcome
Some pretty today using this great new stencil called Layered Tropical Blooms from A Colorful Life Designs.  
Who doesn't want to think about tropical right now.  Sun, water, cool breezes, nice drink in hand....well I digress.  

So here's what I did to create my card. 
  • I began by cutting a piece of white cardstock for my panel.  I positioned that into the corner of my Misti.  HELPFUL TIP: use your Misti with layering stencils to get the exact placement for each layer.  I laid stencil #1 (flowers) over my paper and rubbed on some Picked Raspberry and Candied Apple Distress Oxide inks with a blending brush.  
  • I removed the flowers stencil and laid down stencil #2 by simply placing it back into the corner of my Misti.  I rubbed on some Mowed Lawn and Peeled Paint over the leaves.  
  • I splashed on some water over the flowers to lift some of the colour and add interest.  I splattered with my white Posca pen.
  • Next, I placed the panel onto my ScorPal and using my ScorBug, I added the perforated line.
  • I placed it back into my Misti to stamp the sentiment. 
  • I mounted it onto a piece of pink cardstock, then onto a heavy white card base.

Here is the stencil I used:
