I completely enjoy following Cath Edvalson, Trends Editor over at Paper Crafts Magazine and home of Tuesday Trigger. This week her mom is celebrating her birthday in Hawaii and of course I had to send a Hawaiian birthday card her way! The inspiration photo below...
I LOVED the colors and the flowers and the bird...just tweeked it to have that Hawaiian flair...hopefully her mom will smile at this! Hauoli La Hanau (HAPPY BIRTHDAY!)
I took Lawn Fawn's Say Cheese polaroid and stamped on water color paper and used a mask to stamp this cute little hula girl (this stamp is super old, a gift from my mom when I first started to stamp waaaay back in grade school!)Then I made a mask for the hula girl and stamped the palm tree in the background. See Feeling Nostalgic for a peek at what the entire stamp looks like. I water colored everything using Distress Markers. To complete the look, and tie in more of the colors from the trigger photo, I used some flower punches and curled the edges using my bone folder and placed some pearls in the center. The little hula girl also has a tiny pearl in her flower as well! Oh and that cute little bird is from Lawn Fawn's A Birdie Told Me. Lastly the sentiment comes from Technique Tuesdays Another Day in Paradise.
Hope the weather holds up so that all our visitors can enjoy our islands! I feel truly blessed to call Hawaii home!
