Prickly Cactus



Hello!  I have 2 versions of the same card.   I made the top one first but decided it looked a bit too empty when I took the photo and so changed it by adding another verse to the second one.  Which do you prefer?  I used stamps from Power Poppy Hens & Chicks (2016) and the Hello stamp from Flourishes Cherry Blossoms (2012). Used Copic and Memento Markers and SU Cameo Coral and  Blues and Memento Espresso Truffle and Pear Tart inks for stamping and coloring.  Papers are White CS, Cooral CS, and Green Vellum.  Inked edges of Paper with Memento Pear Tart ink.
Challenges:
Retro Rubber: Challenge #rrcb69 Sketch below.  Hello stamp from 2012 and others from 2016.
CASology Challenge: Week 262 Cue Card Prickly
The Paper Players: Color Challenge #357




Have a great day! I love reading your comments. Theresa

I agree - adding the extra sentiment was a great idea. I like the green vellum layer. Nice colouring too. Thanks for joining us at Retro Rubber and The Paper Players.
