Cloud Stenciling with Tropical party

This is a variation on the card we made for my workshop earlier this month to show stenciling. The clouds are stenciled using the a scallop circle punched out- using the sponge and a very light hand- continually moving the scallop to make the cloud scene. Here I used the tempting turquoise inkpad because that was the color I used on the base card- picked up from the colors in the Island Oasis Designer paper.

The palm tree is stamped twice with old olive on top then the bottom covered with a ripped piece of so saffron with some gold glitter on it to simulate sand. I love this Designer paper and wish they had more of this pattern which is so Gorgeous!

The sentiment is stamped in black from Upsy daisy set.

This is what the sky would look like- it does take a bit of practice but really easy once you get the hang of it. A light hand is always better- it is easiet to add color than to remove it-
moving it around randomly makes it look best.

The drink was stamped onto white twice and punched out once and umbrella and coconut cut out and mounted with dimensionals-edge distress with pumpkin to add a little extra dimension.
