Tropical Chic for As You See It Challenges

It's a quick post today as I prepare for a big craft fair today at George Pringle Elementary School. 

It's one that I do each November and I hope you will join me there today from 1 pm to 7:30 pm if you live in the Okanagan area. There are 60 vendors and it's a good opportunity to get some Christmas gifts. I'll be featuring some cards and novelties as well as a few of my retired products and featuring some classes coming up in the near future, such as my Advent Calendar class to make this kit:

I hope to see you there!

Meantime, it's an As You See It new Challenge Friday, and today, it's a colour challenge, splashed together by Design Team member, Jane Knudsen:

Here's my sample:

  • I was definitely thinking tropical with these pure colours, so I got out my long neglected, but definitely loved Tropical Chic stamp set and inked up those pure primary type colours to create a jungle-like background.
  • I added a little Crumb Cake as my neutral in the mix to soften the effect of those high-powered greens and blues.
  • The Noble Peacock Specialty DSP and Foil Sheets both have Blueberry Bushel sheets in them so I made use of them for some shine on my card.
  • And to balance that, some Braided Linen Trim for the tropical rustic look.
  • The little bird with the bright colours isn't a parrot, but he's from the Free as a Bird stamp set and could be a bird from the tropics. Have you ever noticed how brightly coloured their plumage is compared to most North American birds? I stamped him in Blueberry Bushel and used a Blender Pen to move the ink from the outline to the middle as well as add other colours to the bird's breast.

It's the last day for this sale and my order will go in at 9 pm. So make sure I get your's by 8 pm tonight! (Friday, November 22) or go to my On-Line Store and place an order yourself! It's a great way to stock up just before Christmas!

  1. Love those tropical flowers and leaves Heagher and your sweet bird picks up that hint of blue foil beautifully. Hope your craft fair was successful!
