Ai Tropical Treat Challenge

Hi everyone! Today I am sharing my creation for Art Impressions Tropical Treat Challenge. For more information on this challenge check out the announcement here. For my project I made a tri-fold card with Tropical Circlet MTF stamp set. Scroll to the bottom of this post to see the challenge rules. Hurry, the challenge closes Aug 26th at 5PM PT!
Art Impressions makes a lot of fun and interactive stamp sets, but currently I really like the Circlet Mini Tryfolds. These tryfold cards have such a unique layering effect and they are super easy to make with Art Impressions pre-made tryfold cardstock and envelope packs. Check out the tryfold card packs here!

To make this I card I first stamped the front leaf wreath and die cut the hole within the center of the leaves. I also traced the front opening onto the middle panel with a pencil so I could line up the center image with the front image. To decorate the front panel I die cut a circle mask to protect the stamped image. Then, I ink blended a sunset ombre background. I adhered a tropical leaf printed vellum over top the background and added some floral and sequin embellishment.

Second, I stamped the beach image within the pencil marked outline on the middle panel. I repeated the steps above to stamp the ocean image on the back panel. To decorate the inner panels I used some retired tropical themed scrapbook paper. I die-cut the panels once again so you could see the images through the various layers of cardstock. For some extra fun I used a white gel pen to add some birds flying over the ocean. 

I finished the card by coloring all the stamped scenes with my Copic Sketch alcohol markers. I love all the vibrant colors showcased throughout this card! The middle panel and back panel are showcased below.
Thank you for stopping by my blog today. Check back next week for more Art Impressions inspiration!
