A succulent.......not!

Here's a new digital stamp from Tiffany Doodles on sale now in Tiffany's store. It's actually a succulent, which is a member of the cactus family, that I colored to resemble a marigold. I was inspired by this card, by former Tiffany Doodles team member Virginia, and decided to turn a cactus into a flower.


I enlarged the digi to about 4" across, printed it and sponged on colors with distress inks--Scattered Straw, Wild Honey, and Spiced Marmalade. I cut out and attached a back piece and added some gemstones on the front.

I didn't add a sentiment--there was no room for one--so this card can be used as an all occasion notecard and can fit into an A2 size envelope. You can find this digi in the Tiffany Doodles store and for one week, Tiffany is offering a 10% discount on this digital stamp if you use the promo code "succulent" during checkout.

Thanks so much for visiting today! Wishing you all a fabulous weekend...
