Day Three–Sassy Succulents

Marcella Hawley wows us again with her beautiful botanicals.  Today’s new set from Power Poppy is Sassy Succulents, a set that contains several different images of hens and chicks, and a few others with coordinating sentiments.

I just love Hens and Chicks…I have several specimens growing in pots all around my patio.

I chose a very simple image and a bold print paper from MME Indie Chic.  I love this combination!  I colored the image with Copic markers and sponged it with Wheat Ink from a VersaMagic Dew Drop with the Spellbinders die still in place.  I did the same with the sentiment and used a Labels Seventeen die.   I tied some twine and silk ribbon around it…a simple finish for a simple card.

The samples today are stunning!  I love what the Bloom Brigade created with today’s set! Check them out!
