Sunshine Palms

>> Friday, July 20, 2018

Happy Friday!
I hope your week has gone well! Staring at these palms w/ the water & sunset all around...sounds like heaven on earth. Add an umbrella drink & I'll be your friend forever! My CAS card started w/ a challenge on Splitcoast last week. I didn't get it finished in time for the challenge so it's making its appearance here. The challenge was called Gel Plate Impressionism. Basically, you put a gel plate into your Misti, ink it up w/ Distress oxide inks, mist w/ alcohol (the rubbing kind, lol), stamp your image on top w/ dye ink, then place your card stock on top of the gel plate. So that's what I did. 
The colors move around & mix a bit & the silhouette isn't quite as sharp as it would be, but the overall look is pretty nice. After it dried, I added the seagulls & a little white highlighting on the palms. 

Here's a look at the inside.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great weekend!
