New Succulent Stamps


Hello!  I have been playing with some new Power Poppy stamps and thought I'd enter one of my cards  for the Power Peep of the Week. Each Friday the Bloom Brigade will pick their faves and  highlight them, not only on the Power Poppy Blog HERE but on their Pinterest Power Poppy Peeps Customer Creations .
I stamped the selected  images from Sassy Succulents on white CS with Memento Espresso Truffle ink and colored with Copics.  I cut the images and assembled the card following a sketch from Sketch n Stash challenge. I used an Olive Green cardstock base and "cork" looking pattern paper for the background.  Love the natural look of the pattern paper with the nature theme. Finished with a sentiment from the same stamp set.

Challenges:
Power Poppy: Peep of the Week-share a new Power Poppy creation.
Sketch n Stash: Challenge #142 See sketch on left. Use newest or neglected stash. I used new stamps.
Simon Wednesday:  Challenge is You Gotta Have Friends
Speedy Fox and Friends: Theme is Flowerpots

Supplies:
Stamps: Power Poppy Sassy Succulents
Ink: Memento Espresso Truffle and Rhubarb Stalk
Copics: YG03,63,67, R24,E07,35,97, YR12, V12,15

That cork looking paper is so great as a backdrop for the succulents! This is adorable! Thanks for joining us at Power Poppy!

I could have sworn that was real cork, it looks so authentic! It's the perfect backdrop for your succulents, which I LOVE. They do work great with the sketch. Well done! Thanks for joining us at Power Poppy, and hope to see you back again soon!
