How obnoxious are those colors? But, how cute? And, besides, that's why they call it a challenge!
I decided to tone my colors down just a little, using the faux linen technique for the bg and mounting it on a kraft cardbase. The images are from doodlefactory's tropical set. I stamped the hut and the small palm tree on glossy cardstock and colored them. I sanded them then added a little bit of cool carribean and creamy caramel and sanded again. I layered it with baha breeze, pumpkin pie and wild wasabi. I colored the large palm tree and this cute little hula guy with copics and cut them out. I mounted them on nestie ovals and scallops in baha breeze, wild wasabi, real red and pumpkikn pie. I tied a couple of pumpkin pie ribbons across the card and mounted the ovals on them. I added baha breeze and real red corners with button brads. I'd love for you to join in and be inspired today - post with the keyword FFIF9!
