Shhhh….I have a secret. I cannot keep a succulent alive. Get a succulent, they say. They are easy to care for, they say. pffft! Not for this girl. I tried, I did. So now I just buy faux succulents and they make me happy. It also makes me happy to just color up succulents. How awesome are the succulent stamps Nicole has in the shop??? I love them. I did some masking and stamped out four different images from the beautiful new Succulent Blooms stamp set. I used my Copic markers to color them up. I was practicing my “color plucking” and was brave to add some pinks and corals to the tips of a few of my succulents.
I shopped my PFS stash to find a simple sentiment to this card. I used the “just to say hello” from Forgot To Say Thank You. I stamped it in Intense Black ink and then trimmed it out and added a strip of pattern paper to the bottom of it. I used foam dimensionals to pop it up.
Here is a closer look at the Succulent Blooms. Before I added the sentiment strip I used the masks I had cut out to cover up the finished blooms and added some splatters in black and a bit of gold shimmer. I love the effect a bit of splatter adds to a background.
Thanks for stopping by today. I always love getting to share over here on the PFS Blog. Have a beautiful day friends.
