When I read the theme for this months Cyws “Mottomonat” – “Tropical Island” – my first idea was of course a sunset gradient with stamped palm trees on top. But this was too similar to what I did in April for “Birds & Feathers!”, so I had to think of something new.
I started with a light pink base and then used a fan brush – and lots of colors 😀 – to create the pattern for the backdrop. After that, I simply added the water decals.
I really like the result, especially how the background turned out, though I do think flowers with less white in them would maybe have been prettier. But the look does remind me of a sea of lush and colorful tropical flowers, which was what I aimed for, so I guess I am happy. 🙂
