Feeling Those Tropical Vibes | Fancy Friday Blog Hop

Welcome back to the Fancy Friday Blog Hop. Every month current and past Stampin' Up! Artisans get together to create a beautiful hop inspired by a common theme. This month's theme is Tropical Vibes. 
It's a true treat to hop with these ladies each month. Each and every one of them have a special way to inspire and create. Enjoy... but perhaps a cup of coffee may be in order first!

Today's project was created using the Waterfront stamp set. I was inspired to use the palm trees in the set. Because this set didn't have every element screaming "tropical", using a silhouette was my best option. 

If you are eyeing the birds in the sky, they come from the High Tide stamp set.  And of course the paper can be found (quite sneakily might I add) in the Share What You Love paper pack.

To create the sunset, I sponged with Mango Melody into Crushed Curry. Starting from dark to light I swirled until my heart was content. #swoon

So now you are headed from one Canadian Coast to the other - Check out Jenn Picard. She is incredibly talented and super easy to talk to. Be sure to leave her a comment on how awesome her project is! Keep hopping along feeling our tropical vibes.
