Flourishes September Beautiful World Tour



Hello and welcome to your stop in Belfast, Northern Ireland for the
 Flourishes September Beautiful World Tour!
If you're hopping along and have arrived from Sasha's Inspirations, you're in just the right place.
 If you've just stumbled across the hop here on my blog and want to check out all the BWT creations, you can start back at the Flourishes blog HERE.
Don't forget that you are in with an opportunity to win a beautiful Flourishes stamp set simply by commenting on each designers blog by the end of September!
This month our hostess is Aleksandra and our theme is Postcard!
I chose to use the set Windows to the World - if I was sending a postcard,
 this is exactly the kind of place I'd like to be sending it from!
This tropical scene would be the view from my ocean side hotel.
 I'd be writing my postcard lying there on a sun chair or beach towel looking out at the turquoise sea, trying not to smear the ink with my coconut smelling sun cream!
I also thought that this sentiment was exactly the kind of thing I might write on my postcard!
The image is coloured with copics and popped up on a  square cut with Spellbinders Nestabilities Squares Large.  I used Stampin Up's Orchid Opulence ink for the sponging.  I added some flowers and greenery in the corner.  The grass is simply slivers of cardstock.
I used a white gel pen to highlight the waves.
Those are extremely tiny pearls in the centre of the pink flowers on the image.
Thanks for stopping here in Belfast, now check out what the talented Naomi Gong has come up with this month!
