Celebrating With Cacti

Have you seen cacti and succulents popping up in blogland?
Today I'm sharing a card with Hero Arts new Stamp Your Own Cactus set
paired with one of my favorite coloring mediums--watercoloring.

I stamped assorted cacti and containers with Versamark and gold embossed the images.
Hero Arts daubers were dabbed on a work surface and mixed with water, then used
to color in all the images. If you're ever in a pinch for watercolors, consider daubers.
The colors and results are quite amazing!

I'm especially pleased with how the containers turned out. I added some gold
and green for a mossy look that gives them a bit of texture and dimension.
The cacti were "grounded" with a white embossed sentiment strip.

And a heads up, if you entered Hero Arts Nature Challenge,
the winners will be announced on the blog this Friday so stay tuned!

Thanks for stopping by today!
