Tropical Paradise


I made this card to enter in the challenge below, the theme is "In the Tropics".  I thought this would be a good opportunity to use some of my distress inks!  I started off with white paper and I added the inks one at a time until they blended.  The colours I used were squeezed lemonade, ripe persimmon, and festive berries.  The water and paradise detail at the bottom is from Recollections Adhesive Borders, these came is a large package and they are borders for scrapbooking, I just cut it down to fit a card and I cut out around the waves to give it a neat look.  The tropical  and star details are from K&Company Adhesive Chipboard it came with a bunch of travel themed items.  And last but not least is the camera deail at the top, is called Escape by Little Yellow Bicycle.
