I've lived in the tropics and to be honest the last few days it's been just as hot here in Hampshire! I still associate hot weather with the tropics though.
For this card I used an NBUS stamp and embossing folder set that came with Creative Stamping about a year ago. I painted the flat side of the folder with dark green watercolour paint before embossing, to make the leaves really stand out. I stamped the parrot and sentiment, coloured the parrot with Promarkers and fussy cut, and punched the sentiment with a circle punch. Then I took my favourite Woodware leaf punch and cut an assortment of leaves. Arranged everything on the card and finished with a few "water drops" of clear liquid pearls.
