 Marie here and I am sending you greetings from Hawaii! By the time you read this, I should be checking into the beautiful Kaanapali  Resort in Maui. What do I plan to do? Rest! Rest! Rest!
This is a cute little number that I colored for you for this weeks mini tutorial on our featured Copic Color Combo: Willow Green.
Although this stamp,  (Hula Marci)  is not in stock at this time, MarkerPOP has a few wonderful Hula Girl stamps
that will more than fit the bill!  I will link them under supplies for you!

I used Scattered Straw Distress Ink to stencil Primitive Masks around my
focal image and I then pussy cut around the masks.
I think this added an interesting background that coordinated with my focal image.
I also stamped some leaves for embellishment.
