It's time for the new release of the Tropical Paradise Collection! What a beautiful collection this is! So full of color! Here is a little write up for it:
Join us as we walk the warm, sandy beaches and the glistening ocean laps at the shoreline and help us bid a warm Aloha to the new Tropical Paradise Collection! Further your equatorial escape with realistically shaped plumeria flowers most commonly known for their inclusion in traditional Hawaiian leis boasting blossoms in pinks, whites, reds and yellows amid their large, leafy foliage. Discover the unique and breathtaking birds that call this exotic place home, from toucans to parrots, flamingos and cockatoos which have all been beautifully illustrated and assembled into three dynamic cling stamp sets and coordinating dies! Filled with bright and vibrant colors, the exquisitely designed paper collection will transport you to a tropical island with its fiery sunset reds, dazzling sunny yellows, deep ocean blues and rich leafy greens! Heartfelt Creations invites you to slip away to utopia with the new Tropical Paradise Collection! Escape to an exotic paradise where the air is warm, lush rainforests are filled with the calls of outlandish birds of paradise, and the day begins and ends with the most spectacular array of colors!
Here is my first card with this beautiful tropical collection!
The images were all colored with pencils and mineral spirits and cut with their matching dies. The background mat is from the matching designer papers. I love how cheerful the colors are in this collection!
