Hello and Welcome to Bron's Birthday Hop - this is the one to celebrate her birthday!!
Woohooo. Happy Happy Birthday Bron!!
The theme this month is her holiday destination - Tropical Holiday!! She's been to Port Douglas, the Daintree, Cooktown and the stunning north Queensland paradise beaches. What a brilliant holiday!
So, OF COURSE, I pulled out my gorgeous (new to me) stamp set Sunkissed - perfectly made for tropical Queensland destinations!! I was inspired by the amazingly incredible Vicki Boucher to try this fold and you can see her gorgeous project here.
My card is quite simple really - I stamped all the images from Sunkissed with Gray Granite and then sponged all the panels using Tahitian Tide and So Saffron with blending brushes. I then coloured all the images using Stampin' Blends - with Old Olive, Soft Suede and Tahitian Tide for the water. I used masking paper and one of the Palms dies to create the sun in the sky.
The back of my card features the same treatment and also leaves a place to write my greeting to Bron. This is going into the post, but I know it won't arrive to her before her birthday ...... so SURPRISE!!
I have also added some Wink of Stella to the ocean to show the way the sun shines on the water - I hope you can see it in the photo?
|Up next on the hop is the amazing Tina - make sure you keep hopping all the way around to see everyone's awesomeness!!|

This is lovely, Julia! The fold gives so much depth and perspective, I fully expect to hear the sound of waves in real life. :-)ReplyDelete
