Oh So Succulent PCC232

Hey everyone! Oh my it is a disgusting day outside today in Western Australia and I am happy to be locked away in my craft room with NCIS playing in the background while I make cards. Today's card was inspired by the amazing Paper Craft Crew, today's challenge from them is a sketch challenge and I had so much fun with it.


At first I wasn't sure what stamp set to use, but after some deliberating I decided it would be a fun card to play with the Oh So Succulent stamp set. Before now I have only used the dies and not the stamps so it was fun getting them out and seeing what they could do.


          

          

 This is such a fun set and I don't know why I waited this long to have a proper play with it, but I'm glad I decided to use it for this challenge. I almost decided to ignore the washi tape element of the sketch but I made myself include it, I have a good washi tape collection but I never use them so it was good to be forced to use it.


In order to get the small succulents a lighter purple I simply stamped off on a scrap page with Rich Razzleberry and then stamped on my whisper white card stock.


I made more succulents then what I used on the front so I decided to use them to decorate the inside corner of the card, something I am trying to work on is to decorate the inside of my cards as well instead of neglecting them.

That's all from me for now, I am off to play with some more cards and plan my afternoon around not leaving the beautifully air conditioned house. Stay cool and happy crafting
