Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge: Tropical Trip

It's time for a new Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge!

I'd love to take a trip right to this tropical scene that I created with Lawn Fawn's adorable Life is Good stamp set and coordinating dies. I started with the stamped island and water, then watercolored in the sand, sea, and sky using Tombow markers and a water brush. The trees, hammock, and crab are stamped, watercolored, and die-cut. The sun was cut on my Cameo (which is in obvious need of a new blade and/or a fresh, new, nice and sticky mat - my apologies for the sloppy sun!). The "hello" and clouds are die-cuts (Simon Says Stamp and Lil' Inker, respectively), and the word "paradise" was computer-generated prior to die-cutting. 

For little extras, I added some twine bows to tie the hammock onto the trees, used a clear Wink of Stella pen to add some shimmer to the water, and coated the hello die-cut with glossy accents.

STAMPS: Life is Good (Lawn Fawn)
DIES: Life is Good (Lawn Fawn), Small Hello (Simon Says Stamp), 
Rainbow & Clouds (Lil' Inker Designs)
CUT FILES: Lori Whitlock Sun (Silhouette ID #17118)
OTHER: clear embossing powder, water brush, Scotch foam tape
white linen thread, Ranger glossy accents
