I do not have a green thumb in real life. That is why I love paper foliage - no watering or maintenance required! For today's projects, I am really showing off how versatile DRS Design images can be.
For my first card, I did some surgery on two images to make this potted succulent. I took the Sneaky Bunny Flower Pot and cut out the pot to act as a base for my plant. Then I took the Medium Daisy Bloom, sponged on some green, and then cut it up to make the succulent.
I used the new Blessings sentiment underneath. Super fun! Speaking of the Medium Daisy image, I also used it this weekend as a backing to an Easter Cross. This image can be used so many ways.
On my second card, I tried a new technique to me and made a Mother's Day card. I sponged my base with the CTMH Willow green ink that I used to color my succulent (I also sponged a bit on my diamond base for the flower as well. Then I ran my base through an embossing folder and rubbed Versamark ink on it. I sprinkled on some white embossing powder and heated it up. Came out really different, and I like it.
Snapdragon Diamond three times and fussy cut them out. Colored them with water color pencils and covered them up with Stickles. Lastly, I added the new Happy Mother's Day sentiment and a few gems. I think these snapdragons could be used to make all kinds of fun arrangements and would be pretty layered in different colors as well.
Hope your week is going well!
