Hello Card (Jane's Doodles DT Spotlight)

Hi everyone! :o)

My second post today... If you missed the first one, just scroll down or follow a direct link here.

Today is my turn to be on the spotlight over at Jane's Doodles and I made this CAS (clean and simple), one layer, Hello Card.

To make this card, I used GORGEOUS Jane's Doodles 'Cactus' stamp setSucculents and cactus are my favorite plants, so you can imagine how much I LOVE the set. :o)

When I received the stamp set (August 2016), I stamped all images on paper scraps and fussy cut them out. I made these to use them as a help to arrange scenes and as masks. I store these in a pouch with the stamp set.:o)

For a card base I used Canson XL Mixed Media Paper. I stamped the the cactus/succulent pot directly on the card base using pre-made masks. Here and there I fixed some lines with black fine liner. I colored the stamped image in watercolor technique using Distress Inks. After drying, I stamped a sentiment on the card overlapping the pot. I like this a lot!! :o)

As a finishing touch, I coated a cactus's bloom and sentiment with glossy Wink of Stella. Love the shimmer!! :o)
