Using a generic circle die as a mask, I masked off the centre of the card and watercoloured the light blue across the panel. Once dry, I removed it and used the negative part of the circle die to mask off the panel so I could focus on the central area of the card. Tiger & Lily coordinating dies were used with masking paper to create the island scene along with no-line watercolouring.

I used the leaves from Leafy Stamp Set, as I really liked the hanging leaves from the inspiration photo. At first, I masked the area with some posted notes, blended my background and then stamped the images slightly off-setting them... I wanted to achieve a more graphic modern look :)
