Succulents & Bees

Hello everyone, I'm up on the Sweet n Sassy blog today sharing two fun cards with you. On this succulent card, I did some masking on watercolor paper to create this fun collage.  I colored my succulents with Arteza Real Brush Pens and fussy cut them before popping them up over a plain white (embossed) background. Keeping the background simple really helps to make the main image "pop."

 I included lots of "frilly" accents on this one with die cut lace and doilies!

The succulents are just beautiful, lovely coloring of them. Love the embossing folders on both cards and the doily framing with the honey jar is too cute!
