Succulents have become my all time favorites for planting inside or outside.
So....when Simon Says Stamp introduced this adorable set of planters and succulent plants, I simply had to have it and of course had to put it right to use. The retro sketch for this week was the perfect format. Not to mention I also ordered this great stencil and that fit right in with the Addicted to CAS sketch challenge.
This succulent set also has a matching die set and I needed that too. That pretty scallop label is from Reverse Confetti. I started out with some watercolor paper that I had cut for my card base. I added a wash of Shabby Shutters Distress Stain with some spritzes of water. When that was dry, I wanted a little more detail for my card base so I used my new stencil and some Peeled Paint Distress Stain. I added a little bit of those two colors to my label too. The cup was cut from a piece of watercolor paper that I had played around with recently. I found just the spot I wanted to cut the cup from. The plant was also colored with Distress Stain and then accented with a white paint pen. The sentiments are from the same stamp set.
Here is the retro sketch.
