Birthday Succulent

It is time for another CAS Colours & Sketches challenge. Check out the latest challenge:

This is the fifth Tuesday and so it is a Timeless Tuesday double challenge. One of the ideas behind the “Timeless Tuesday” challenge was to bring back retired colors paired with a past sketch. I love, love, love Sage Shadow so I knew I would definitely use it in my first Timeless Tuesday challenge.

Here is my take:

Desert Succulent | by karen @ carefree creations

Sage Shadow is one of my favorite colors, mostly because it is perfect for succulents. I do not have a green thumb, and Colorado isn’t the best place for succulents, so I don’t have any around me, but I do like to stamp them.

The succulent is 3 layers. The bottom layer was die cut, the other two were hand cut. I originally stamped on white, but it was too stark. I ended up with a pale cream that goes well with the orange colors.

I hope you join us at CAS Colours & Sketches!

Thanks for stopping by!
