Cactus Farmimg

Hehehehe....I am not a farmer...I can kill plants faster than anyone alive!!  I do love to stamp though and we have the most adorable cactus stamp and die set called Stuck on You and I just had to play with them.  

Are these not the cutest....and they will not die!!  I used watercolors, which I randomly applied to watercolor paper and then cut my cactus and then stamped.  The top card I inked the background, the middle card is one of my random watercolor papers and the bottom is our Fundamental Papers.  To stamp the pots I inked the stamp then stamped off and then rolled the edges in the ink. 

Thanks for hopping go and CREATE!!

To make this card i stamped the flowers and leaves with VersaMark ink and embossed with white embossing powder.  I then water colored them and cut the with the thin cuts.  For the background I splattered watercolor.  I then adhered they pieces to my card blank and added sequins and white dots for an added touch.
