SugarPea Designs - Sweet2Repeat


It’s time for the SugarPea Designs Sweet2Repeat Blog Hop! 




Now that you have had a chance to play with all the fun goodies from the Summer Release, all the SugarPea designers have created even more projects to inspire you! 

And there's a prize! Be sure to check out the SugarPea Designs blog post for details.

I decided to go graphic with some dramatic black silhouettes. I created a bold background with distress inks and an acrylic block - inspired by Jennifer McGuire here. As you can see, the blue ink didn't spread really well in that bottom corner, but I think it actually makes it look like the water is sparkling in the sun - perfect - just like I planned! lol!

Once the distress inks were dry,  I stamped my palm tree and sentiment. To give my palm tree an island, I got creative with a leaf stamp. Then I used the vein of the leaf to underline the sentiment, giving it an even more hand-written look.

I used:

Let's-Flamingle

Tropic-Like-It's-Hot


Store-SugarCuts-Zig-Zag-Stitched-Rectangles
