Flowering Desert Sunset

Ok…I made it through a few blog posts without sharing a Flowering Desert card.  So, today I created a birthday card for a family member that I want to share.

A went with a watercolor background to create a sunset.  Same as before, I used my aqua painter and ink pads.  The colors from top to bottom are Poppy Parade, Mango Melody and Soft Suede.  I stamped plants in the background then made a focal point out of the larger cactus.  To create that, I stamped the cactus with Granny Apple Green and added shading with a sponge dauber.

Around the edges I added Shaded Spruce to give depth.  It was stamped on Whisper White for a crisper image then fussy cut.  Dimensionals on the back made it stand out nicely.

As for the sentiment, I used words from Well Said heat embossed in black.  These stamps are cling stamps so I used the tip I showed you in a previous blog post about using washi tape.  You can go HERE to check it out.
