I used a Stardust Glitter pen to add just a bit of sparkle to the succulents. I stamped the sentiment in a dark green ink. Lastly I added just a few light blue ink splatters and HBS Clear Iris sequins to finish it off.
I loved how this card turned out so I decided to try the same watercolor and hand drawn line trick with all the cactus images too. For both cards I really wasn't too worried about being very detailed or precise with the watercoloring. I think this is called messy watercoloring - just scribble on little color from the Zigs and blend out with a water brush. I wanted these designs to be more about the look as a whole than each individual image. So I gave more attention to varying the shades and tones of the greens to create a little dimension and depth.
For the Cactus card I used much brighter vibrant shades of green. I fussy cut out all the images then started adhering each cactus one by one. I wanted them tightly packed with no gaps to completely cover the bottom half of the card. I used the HBS cloud stencil from the Outdoor Scene Builder stencil set and some Tumbled glass distress ink to give the top half of the card a nice airy sky above the cactus. That was the perfect place to stamp the sentiment.
