Thanks for Being You

Hello!!

I'm popping in with a card I made for PinkFresh Studio November Challenge! I missed the past couple months, I've been soooo busy! It hasn't gotten much better, but I needed to take a little break from my DT designing and playing with some unused goodies is a great way to refresh my mojo!!

The above is the graphic with the colors and theme! I went through my inks and picked out colors that were close. I started with the Simply Succulents stamp set, using my MISTI to do some watercolor stamping with the inks. The inks I used are listed at the end of this post.

I wanted to add a few details, so I went in with a fine black pen and added some lines using the stamp as a guide. Then I fussy cut out the succulent planter. From a matte gold card stock I used one of PinkFresh's Terrarium dies. I just adhered it on top of my succulents.

Next, I used the same inks to blend an inked background. I used Bristol card stock for the first time and wow!! it blended wonderfully!!! I added a few splatters of water and then black paint.

When that was dry I added a strip of black card stock along the bottom and then stamped the Thanks For Being You sentiment above that.

I tied some black twine at the top of the terrarium and after adhering the succulents with foam tape added a bit of glue at the top of the card for the twine, cutting off the extra when it was dry.

Thanks so much for stopping by!!
