All I had to do to trigger the idea for this card was to look out my window for a glimpse at life on an island. The orchids that are blooming wildly in my yard caught my eye right away. They're little "islands," floating on the branch, in an archipelago of color. The background here as well as the foundation of each flower is chalk. I added some yellow acrylic paint over each flower and softened the overall card with a layer of white. Lots of fingerpainting on this one!
