It's Tiki Time!

Happy Hump Day!  Welcome to the Bombshell Stamps Blog Hop!

You should have arrived here from Glittery Katie's blog, if not please start at the Bombshell Stamps blog so you don't miss anything!

As you may know from hopping this month's hop by now, the theme for this blog hop is banners.  I made a tiki banner using my favorite little tiki dudes!  Please pardon my pictures, a rainy day and then night time did not do this banner well. 
Below are some close-ups.  Photographing this banner was quite challenging!
This Tiki dude was colored with Spectrum Noir markers TN8, TN7, and TN2.  I also broke apart a Hawaiian lei (from the dollar store), sewed two of the layers together and then used the Epiphany Crafts Circle tool to create an epoxy circle for the middle of the flower with the Cocktails, Music and Fun stamps.
The Tiki Letters were made from the Tiki bamboo stick stamp from the Tiki Party stamp set and colored in with GB10, OR1, and GB5. 

Have I mentioned I *love* these Tiki guys?!  They are so cute and fun to color.  They are from the Tiki Party Stamp Set.   The above was colored with EB5, GB10, and GB5.

The hibiscus flowers are from the Hula Girl Stamp Set and then colored also with Spectrum Noirs. The green paper is fabric backed banana leaf paper found at A Cherry On Top.

I also used a Cuttlebug embossing folder to add some more texture into the banner. 

Now I'm off to find myself a nice frosty drink and your next stop on the hop is over to Michelle's blog to see her fabulous project!

Thank you for hopping with us!
