Succulent Garden

Shortly before Mother's Day I got an order from The Greetery and among the goodies was this set of succulent dies. So yesterday I finally pulled them out and proceeded to make a few of the succulents up to put on my garden card. I must say I am very happy with them. When I used to have a flower bed I had a few in my garden and we called them Hens and Chicks and this is what this garden scene reminds me of. I hope you will enjoy my little simple garden too.


I used the Life Changing Blending Brushes and some of Gina K. Designs inks to make the background  and also to add color to my succulent dies. I hope I assembled them correctly. But they looked quite good to my way of thinking. The last thing I did was to stamp the sentiment which is from The Greetery as well and is from the Comforting Commands stamp set.

I am entering this in the Word Art Wednesday Challenge #388-#389.

I hope your weekend is going great. I love all the comments you leave too.

God bless,
Verna

The darker background really makes the succulents pop, and they are colored beautifully. I think I need to check out that company.

The succulents look awesome to me but if you had to "assemble" them? Well they look downright fabulous! I've got to be the worst at layered stamping and assembling... Nice job, and LOVE that sentiment!

Beautiful card and the colors are amazing as well as your inked background!! I too use to have chicks and hens in my gardens, not sure were they went though lol, must have wondered off somewhere. It's so fun visiting all the blogs and seeing all the new things that are out there to purchase!
