Tropical Leaves

Ready for a new challenge over at Creatalicious Challenges?  Our theme as always is Anything Goes with an optional twist ... we want you to "Make your own Background".  We don't have a sponsor for this challenge so it's just for fun!

I started going through all the stencils I've collected along the way that have never been used.  I came across one that I HAD to have only to sit in my craft room unsued - well not today friends, not today!

The stencil is Tropical Leaves by Lawn Fawn. To create the background I used Mixed Media paper then started blending colors.  I didn't want to cover up the background so I just used strips of scraps to create a bottom border and added the sentiments.

Distress Oxide Inks used:
Card #1 - Abandoned Coral, Ripe Persimmon, Twisted Citron 
Card #2 - Cracked Pistachio, Mermaid Lagoon
Card #3 - Iced Spruce, Mowed Lawn, Pine Needles

Don't forget to check out the Design Team's creations for some inspiration then start linking up!


  1. Love the tropical vibe on these, Michelle! I'm a plant person, so these are right up my green alley.

  2. When I see someone's blog, I really like it.
