The Tropical Escape DSP comes in a handy 6" x 6" size and makes a great leafy background. There are various designs including leaves, stripes and more all in our lovely greens with some Blushing Bride and Basic Black for contrast.
I've stamped the cute rhino from Animal Outing stamp set and coloured him with the lighter of the Smoky Slate Stampin' Blends, adding some extra touches with the darker alcohol marker.
Here's another variation using one of the other Tropical Escapes DSP (last day for our DSP special today.)
I've stamped the kangaroo in black and coloured him with the watercolour pencils. In August we have a new batch of pencils in alternative colours to the set in the main catalogue if you'd like to add to your pencil collection. We've also got the Stitched Season framelits you can see featured in this card. August only for the framelits and stamp set and while stocks last so grab them quick if you're keen on that lovely stitched edge shape.
A great tip from the talented Tina Gillespie (find her here) is to blend the pencils using the Wink Of Stella clear glitter pen. Love the touch of sparkle this gives. (Hard to photograph!)
