Woodware – Sorry I’ve Been So Prickly

Woodware – Sorry I’ve Been So Prickly

Starting with a firm favourite of mine – Woodware.  The stamp this time is the Succulents stamp set.  Aren’t they cute?  I’m a little obsessed with succulents and cacti right now, so this stamp is right up my street!

Woodware - Sorry I've Been So Prickly

I went for a simple style for this card, I lined up all the stamps in my Misti (it has really helpful guidelines on the perspex).  The ink I used was my go to Versafine black ink pad.  I then used a selection of Memento and Tim Holtz distress ink pads with my watercolour brush and painted them in a very basic shaded style.

Memento inks used were:

Pear Tart


Bamboo Leaves

Rich Cocoa

Desert Sand

Tim Holtz Distress:

Wild Honey

Peacock Feathers

Dusty Concord

Worn Lipstick

I layered the watercolour paper onto a nice bright screen scrap of card stock I found in my stash and added the sentiment above the little cactus.

The painting took a while as I tweeked it a little, but overall I am happy with how it turned out.
