Aloha with My Favorite Things

I finally caved and decided to join the My Favorite Things
I've seen a bunch of FABULOUS cards which was my biggest hesitation for not joining. 

Then decided to have some fun anyway with my favorite MFT set
Polynesian Paradise.

I wanted to create my own Hawaiian background and give it an "Aloha Shirt" print or 
Hawaiian print look.  Of course with watercoloring being all the rage I got out my 
Tombow markers and got to work!
Everything was stamped with Versamark then white heat embossed.
I watercolored the plumerias in shades of yellows and pinks.  Finally to create
more depth and shadowing, I added shades of blue having more color around the bottom
edges of the images and using my waterbrush to pull the blue away. 
Lastly the sentiment was white heat embossed on some pink cardstock and foam taped to the panel.

Here's another look...

So that's it for me.
There's still time to enter and I'm hoping to get one more card in
 before midnight tomorrow (September 18).
