Aloha! from Designed2Delight

Where is my mind today?  I completely forgot to check the D2D blog this morning to see if my card was posted.  In my defense, I was trying to get things ready for my son to visit.

I'm here now, with my card for the D2D Designer's Challenge "Let's go to the Beach".  I was just at the beach about a week ago, so I'm still in a very tropical mood as you can see by my card!

I picked three different D2D images to use: Palm Tree (Dollar Digi), Flip Flops (Dollar Digi) & Tropical Summer Hibiscus.  What fun I had playing around with these!

I wanted to get away from using Designer Paper for my background.  So, I grabbed one of my sheets of 'Cling & Scrunch' backgrounds made with dye inks, water and cling wrap from the kitchen.  Got the technique from the Technique Junkies Newsletter.  I did add some sheen by adding Twinkling H2Os to the ink & water.  Of course that doesn't show in the photograph.

On top of the 'Cling & Scrunch' background I embossed the word Aloha from a Provo Craft stamp set.

Here are the challenges the card is entered into:
Digital Tuesday - spellbound
Tuesday Throwdown - fun in the sun
Pollycraft Monday - the great outdoors
Stampin Sisters in Christ - what works for you (ribbon)
Crafts & Me - summertime
Simon Says Stamp - anything goes
Party Time Tuesdays - blue skies & sunny days
The Crafty Pad - lots of texture
Moving Along with the Times - favorite things (ribbon & bg tech)
Craft your Passion - just for you
Really Reasonable Ribbon - cool it
Mark's Finest Paper - bright & cheery, pink, yellow, & green
The Stamping Boutique - summer scene
The Cheerful Stamp Pad - my favorite background (cling & scrunch)
I Did it Creations - floral
Sentimental Sundays - inky fingers (cling & scrunch bg)

Please visit the Designed2Delight blog for the challenge and to see the other Design Team members creations.  Going on also is the Free image challenge which you can find here.  This week's freebie is a beautiful peacock.  Hope to see you there!!

Thank you for the idea of the soft gray, I never would have thought to change the ink color before printing. I LOVE the way you combined the 3 digis together! They look like they were meant to be together. Thanks for stopping by.
