Little Red Wagon Challenge #355 ~ Surf's Up! (Tropical Theme)

Well good morning.  And the first thing I am going to write this morning is a disclaimer that I can no longer read....LOL!!! Or the heat has got to my brain as we have had temperatures in the 90ies for days. Or maybe I just wrote it down wrong.  Okay, now that you have the point, it is Wednesday and time for another new challenge at Little Red Wagon.  Our hostess this week is Brenda and her theme is "Surf's Up" ~ and the subtitle was tropical theme.  She wants to see surfing or ocean type scenes with mermaids on your makes. (ETA:I told the girlfriends before hand that I had messed up the theme and when I looked this morning Brenda had written "to make it easier let's just go with anything tropical" ~ thanks my friend for rectifying my goof.)

In my planner I had only written tropical theme and to me tropical theme means oceans, pineapples and flowers.  I went on a hunt for a hibiscus flower as it is one of my favourites.  I found a number of freebie digital stamps at Beccy's Place and this was the one I chose.  It is also a bit different than my usual style as it is a true image and not cartoony or cutesy.  I coloured it up with my Copic markers and added plain and textured card stock, a sentiment, some twine and a couple of sequins.  I like how it turned out and am going to try a few more of the flower images.

Thanks for dropping by.  I hope to see you at Little Red Wagon to see the inspiration from the other girlfriends (hope they got it right...LOL!) and see a tropical project of your own.

Enjoy your day!
