Hibiscus Coast



Once again I'm sneeking a card in at the near close of a challenge. The idea for this card has been in my head for about a week, and today I finally got chance to put ink to paper :) I'm really happy with how this card has come out- it's not often that you get an idea and it actually works out completely as you imagined.
I've taken direct inspiration from the photo over at Jac Inks Papercraft Challenges. The photo certainly brings back happy memories from my own trip to Maui.
I've layered the flowers with dimensionals to give some depth to the view.

Details:
Inks: Pacific Point, Melon Mambo, Peach Parfait, So Saffron, Tempting Turquoise, Rich Razzleberry, Pear Pizzazz.
Stamps: Greenhouse Garden, Teeny Tiny Sentiments.
Other: Island Oasis DSP, Hemp Twine, Sponges, Scallop Oval.

Great card Debi, I love how you've used sponging and masking to contrast with the gorgeous hibiscus at the front. And to pop them all over the top of that great DSP is very clever. Well done and thanks for joining us at "jac-inks" challenges.

Your card is really lovely Debi. Beautiful brayering and the twine down the bottom is the perfect finishing touch. I think you might have the winner! :)
