Tropical Desire

Have you seen this inspiration photo from the new challenge 

I was mesmerized from the first and really wanted to play with this new challenge.  I missed the inaugural one, but I am sneaking in on the last day for challenge #2!
I had decided to use the Tropical Leaves from SSS and wanted to colour with my Kuretake Gansai Tambi paints on kraft.  I stamped the leaves across the bottom kraft panel in white pigment ink, let dry and then painted over.  I did the same with my sentiment, using my MISTI.  The little wood asterisk was smooshed into a gold ink pad and the leaf centers on the pink leaves were lined with a metallic pen.  Very simply designed card, but just love these colours together!
Have a great day!


  1. Gansai on kraft--looks like it's not watercolor paper? Wow, you have mad skills! So glad you were able to join us this round!

  2. Oh I LOve this technique, and have yet to try it! Lovely card, gorgeous colors - whose kraft is that? It has a wonderful fibrous look! xx

  3. Oh what a lovely card and such a fab take on the challenge ... Loved your PTI cards too!

  4. How pretty, I always love colors on kraft!
