Tropical floral

Hi there,

I was away last week and without internet, so it was a bit tough not able to stroll in blogland!  :)  So a lot of catching up to do this week and when I saw CASology's cue word "Tropical" I knew I want to play with my 15 year old Stampendous Hibiscus flower stamp!  Cause nothing speaks tropical to me more than the sight of a Hibiscus flower!!  It's an outline stamp, so perfect for me to play along Kathy's 30 Day Colouring Challenge.  I also want to play for the Tag You're It! Challenge, and Virginia's View Challenge #13 - All Things Embossed.

Here's my card:

For this card I tried a new colouring method after I saw Jennifer's Coloring With Pigment Ink video on her blog.  Oh yes I used my fingers to ink the flowers and then embossed with clear EP.  All other stamped images are embossed with clear EP as well.  This is a close up you could see the flower is covered with EP.

Oh, Cindy, how pretty! You are right, the hibiscus flower definitely says "tropical!" I love your coloring and the white embossed flowers on the card base. Welcome home and so glad you found time to play along with us this week at CASology!

Sweet card, Cindy! I love the tropics and this card is so IT! We actually have a hibiscus plant right outside our kitchen window here at our new house. It almost always has blooms, too. Your coloring is great and you sure hit lots of challenges! Hugs!

Your card is beautiful. I need to check out that technique you used. I also love hibiscus flowers, and they were the first thing that came to my mind as well, when I saw our cue word. Thanks so much for playing along at CASology this week. I hope to see you here again soon.

Such a beautiful card, Cindy! I love the soft shade of purple you chose for your Hibiscus flower and how you stamped it in white on the corners of your card! Gorgeous shine with your EP, too! Fabulous take on the inspiration card at TYIC!

Fabulous card Cindy, I love the white embossing at the corners kind of an inverse of your beautifully colored flowers. Great entry for all of the challenges.

Wow, this is one fabulous card, Cindy! Love the embossing on the corners and that soft color you used on your hibiscus. Have a great week!
