Fusion Card Challenge - Cactus Door

Hi there blog friends ~ It's time for a new challenge at Fusion and this time our prompt is 'Cactus Door'. I was excited to receive a beautiful cactus stamp set as a birthday gift from my sweet friend, Michele, and couldn't wait to ink it up!


On a stitched panel, I colored everything with Copic markers. I tried to blend different colors on the cacti, but I'm not sure if I was very successful...more practice is needed, for sure! I added a few clear gems, and that was it :) 

Don't forget the best thing about the Fusion Card Challenge is that you can choose between the sketch and the inspiration photo, or both! My teamies have created some amazing cards to inspire you, so feel free to stop by the challenge blog and play along with us!

Thanks so much for stopping by,






Supplies
Stamps: Trinity Stamps - Succulent Banner
Dies: Trinity Stamps - Succulent Banner; MFT - Stitched Rectangle STAX #1
Misc: Copic markers; Pretty Pink Posh - Sparkly Clear Sequins

Beautiful card, beautiful image and fabulous coloring - I can totally see the different colors you've used - subtle and beautifully blended, but still visible and natural-looking.
