08 Cuba

Cuba so many ideas but no idea where to start.

Google images is always my first port of call and some of the old pan am etc posters kept calling to me but I kept coming Back to a pic of a pink American car in front of a turquoise building

And beaches.

I did my background page early on in the week and I like it.

It's some papers I think I got from paper chase years ago and some peel offs I got as part of a set. Im not a scrapper or a card maker so why have I got so much art stuff. Cos I love t and I want to be crafty

I know peel offs can be a bit naff no offence but I thought these looked cite.

I made the pocket out of a plastic sheet I got in a pack from tk maxx

The post card is bigger than my normal on one of my daily trips to the works ( sale in now) I got a make your own post card kit with a cute lion/ unicorn stamp some more paints ad pencils

The card it's self is painted with block watercolours in light blue then dark green to make a turquoise then I used the rose colour to paint some cream card stock. Cut out a basic card shape added detail with a pink glitter pen a green pearl sticker from the same set as the plastic sheet.

It looked a bit plane so I drew a random palm tree. I doodle this a lot on my pad at work very simple with a gold paint pen for the trunk then used a Jenna coloured pro marker to make it more tree like.

Used 2 shades of green glitter pens to drawn the leaves

Stuck the card to the background a. Et voila
