Hello friends! I'm so excited to share a card featuring
 Sweet n' Sassy Stamps BRAND NEW release -- Succulents!!

I tried something different with this card....I stamped my succulents on watercolor paper using distress oxides. Then I used a wet paint brush to pull the color to the centers of the leaves. I added a bit of depth with coordinating colors, and re-stamped the image for clear defined lines. The last thing I did was add a bit of black splatter - just for fun!

Supplies and Tools:

As you like Challenge - CAS or FAF
(Definitely Fussy and Fancy - I'm not good at CAS cards)
Krafty Chicks - Anything Goes + optional create a scene
Colour Crazy Craft Challenge - Anything Handcolored goes
If you give a crafter a cookie -- Inspiration Board (inspired by the colors)
Stamplorations Theme and Sketch - Inspired by the photo of succulents
