Thank You Oh So Succulent

I had an unexpected surprise with a Saturday delivery this weekend, I had been eyeing of a few challenges, and decided to break out one of my new bundles this afternoon and completed two challenges!

I adore the colour combination from INKspiration02, and also incorporated Krista Frattin's gorgeous layout.


I swapped out Krista's square for a circle, and instead of vellum embossed the background and attached to layers of Wisteria Wonder and Mint Macaron. Instead of a horizontal strip, I wrapped the Succulent die cuts around my circle.

I also did some double or shadow stamping for the sentiment from One Big Meaning;  first I stamped Soft Sky then off set ever so slightly with Wisteria Wonder. I love the effect the Stitched framelits add to a project, and they combine beautifully with the scalloped framelits from Layering Circle Dies

Oh So Succulent is amazing - it is a 2 step stamp set, whilst it is very detailed it was surprisingly easy to line up the photopolymer stamp to create these beautiful images. I even got adventurous and used a dauber to colour the centre of the larger flowers with Soft Sky, then added Wisteria Wonder to the edges to create a 2 tone flowers.
