Crafting Trends 2017 - Succulents

This is the trend that took me most by surprise. I lived in New Mexico for over 5 years and have a special place in my heart for these juicy little plants. 

As a side note, cactus are also being included in this trend even though they technically are not succulents.  

Inspiration: Online Card Classes Clear & Sheer class.

Technique: There are a few things going on with this card
1. I used clear embossing paste with a stencil to create the textured background.
2. I colored those adorable plants with watercolor pencils, smoothing it out with the Blending Pen.
3. I heat embossed the sentiment on vellum. 

Card Elements: I used the Stuck on You stamp set, Watercolor Pencils and Blending Pen, Versamark Ink, White Embossing Powder and Uptown Fundamentals
