The Card Concept #118- Cacti Clusters

It's time for another The Card Concept challenge! I created my card based on the inspiration photo below. Succulents are my favourite plant and I KNOW they are hard to kill but I still can accomplish that; so even though I love them they are yet another greenery that I do not attempt to keep alive. :) 

I have a clean and simple card to show you today in which the potted plants themselves and the colour scheme were my inspiration. The new Rooting for You stamp set by Concord & 9th arrived at my door JUST in time for this challenge. Perfect timing! 

On an A2 white card base, I used my MISTI to stamp the shelves in black ink, and all the outlines of the plants, leaves and frame, masking some if necessary. Then I stamped all the solid images in various ink colours. One of the purple planters has some Stickles Diamond glitter added to it for sparkle...something I think I add to nearly every card. I love sparkle. :) 

Head on over to The Card Concept blog to see how the rest of the team was inspired and what styles they used on their cards. Play along with us using any of the styles we highlight...I can't wait to see what you come up with! 

Just a reminder that this is the LAST challenge of the summer. We will be back in September after our yearly break and we can't wait to bring you more inspiration and look forward to seeing your creations! Happy cardmaking to you all!
