Double D Challenge - Tropical

It is team Diane's turn to Wow you with their inspiration for this challenge. 
Here is the inspiration for you. 

This is the Prize

We have hibiscus flowers in our backyard and they are so beautiful  I need to go no further for my inspiration. 
 Are they not gorgeous? 
 This stamp is Gina K Designs Stately Flowers 4.  The die cut that it is stamped on is called Wrapped Scalloped Rectangles by Memory Box. I have colored them with my Copics, using the masking technique.  Then I drew lines and colored them in with black marker.  The splatters were done with GKD Tiny Textures, after coloring, I like a more controlled splatter. 
Then I used a brush to put some gold watercolor on it.  I wish that you could see it. 

Here you can faintly see the gold. 

I hope to see you as an entry in this challenge. 
Please check out all of the inspirational cards for your motivation at Double D

Happy July 4th!

  4. This is beautiful, Barbara! I love hibiscus and the color on this one is lovely. We used to have hibiscus in our back yard, but our Maple trees have grown so big and shade so much of the yard that the hibiscus no longer flowers.
