A Tropical Valentine--#tgifc197

It's color challenge week at TGIF Challenges.  The color combo of Coastal Cabana, Pineapple Punch and Berry Burst evoked the topics for me, so I searched for tropical ideas to use for my project.  I actually didn't do much searching--I had the Bella & Friends stamp set sitting on my desk.  I decided the little parrot with the heart in its mouth would make a great tropical Valentine:

I stamped the parrot in Jet Black StazOn on a piece of Watercolor Paper, then colored it with my Aqua Painter and the three colors of ink.  After coloring the parrot, I did a quick wash over the paper with Coastal Cabana and then used the Aqua Painter to splatter more Coastal Cabana on the card.  I used the "love you" from the Forever Lovely stamp set for my greeting.  To highlight the parrot, I die cut a heart frame using the Be Mine Stitched Framelits.

This is such a fun color combo!  Get more inspiration from the TGIF design team and challengers at the TGIF Challenges blog here.
