For today I am playing along with As You See It and Inspired By Challenges. Here is my card for today, enjoy!
|Distressing the edges and around the cacti seemed appropriate for the design. The background paper is slightly distressed and it only seemed fitting the edges should be the same.|
The cacti were stamped and white embossed directly on the background. I then used Prismacolor pencil to lightly color in some base white color. Lastly, I went in with color. The white base helped make the colors stand out.
|The strips of paper were positioned per the sketch. I wanted to keep a southwest feel by using natural colors and geometric patterns that are often found in that area of the U.S.A.|
Sorry, no hives here.
