Debs Tile Challenge

For her tile theme Deb choose Tropical Sea. I had in mind an idea using distress inks in blues and oranges, which went horribly wrong! LOL. Then I found this fun image from an old Craft Stamper and it brought to mind tropical plants.....

I hand dyed the linen on a recent play date with Carrie and have been 'dye-ing' (groan ;-) to use it.

The beading is hand stitched and there is a little padding to soften the look.
