This is for the Inspiration challenge and the photo we were inspired by is in the link on the first post. http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/fo...d.php?t=143830
StampinDeedee was a challenge hostess for May VSN and she had us doing balloon textured backgrounds. I put rice in the balloon and made a background using ink from the pad. So thatís how this color was added after I masked off the areas with post it notes. Itís very quick to create with and I really like the look. The sun is done with the rock and roll technique. I extended the trunk on the palm using a stamp positioner for placement. The flowers are cut out and taped to the card. This is a tall card that fits the business size envelope.
