I guess the good thing about the unbelievably hot heat we've been getting is having an excuse to hang out at home in the air. This was the third card that I made this weekend. This uses Beate's weekend sketch #51. Inkadinkadoo has some of the cutest little sets out there. And they were only a dollar ...gotta love that!
To create the strip of cactus, I clear embossed the images and then loosely filled them in with watercolors. I was hoping to achieve a slight batik effect. I cut the word phrase apart so I could stamp the phrase in a single row. I strayed slightly from the sketch by moving the image to the left side. shhhh, don't tell but it's covering an ink smudge. oops, lol!
