Tropical Shores

 
For the month of March Craft the Scene's challenge theme is  Tropical Shores-to show things like palm trees, beaches and a bit of water.   I used a lot of stamps for my scene including Flourishes' Palm trees with hammock from Beach Life, Seaside Stamping Ink's sand dunes hills, Alextamping's fence, ship and water reflections and ripples, and GKD birds.  I used inks Memento Rich Cocoa, Summer Sky, Bahama Blue, Toffee Crunch, Grey Flannel: Brilliance Moonlight White (for sails); Copics E00,E15,E30, E34, E35, E50, YG67, B24, YR09, and Memento Markers Green Bamboo and Tuxedo Black, and some pencils for highlighting.  Used brown brads on the trees for coconuts. I used Oval scallop Nesties die to create clouds in the sky. Used number of techniques including sponging,   masking, coloring, and blending to get the look that I wanted.   I used a gold card base and mat of bright blue mat under the scene.  I spent 6 weeks on the tropical Island of Captiva recently which was great inspiration for this challenge.
