It's a sunny day here, but also pretty humid. Maybe that's what led to my tropical thoughts ... ...
I know ... Spring is just arriving this week, and here I am with more of a Summery creation. Oh well ... I could definitely adore being in a tropical locale! Having lived in the plains my entire life, with only precious little visits to oceans, sand, and plentiful vegetation ... my daydreams often tend to include salt water breezes, waves, florals, and exotic pretties of all sorts.
~All it took to create a watery cover for the flamingo was an Aqua Pen, a bit of water, and ink smooshed into the lid of my Dapper Denim ink pad. Literally use a sweeping motion with the brush on the portion of the the watercolor paper where the flamingo will stand.
~Seems that I've slipped back to my natural layers + popped up dimension with this one. Stamp off a cluster of foliage before adding the cut versions of the splendid tropical leaves. I didn't want to add another layered element, so my Misti enabled a perfect placement of the 'Thanks' from the 'Weather Together' stamp set. All other stamps are from 'Pop of Paradise'. Both sets are from the current annual SU catalog.
