Succulents with Pencils


Welcome to my studio!  Today I am playing with Power Poppy stamps from the Sassy Succulents set.  I stamped the sentiment and three pots of the succulents with Memento Espresso Truffle ink on white CS and colored with Koh-I-Noor and OMS.  I loved how the coloring with pencils turned out.  I really did not start with a design and just let the layout evolve.  I used Spellbinders Regal Frame dies to embossed and cut the frame.  I inked the raised areas to bring out the embossing but afraid it does not show well in this photo.  I placed the framed images on a Pear Tart card base. 
Not quite the look I wanted but it works for a few challenges.

I'm falling in love with pencils, I think. It's so good to see this cute succulent set in use. Your coloring with the pencils looks great. I especially love the little cutie on the right. Really a very happy card! Thanks for joining our Pencil Me In challenge at Power Poppy, Theresa!
