Prickly Cactus

Ahhhh, it's Sunday!  Time to relax a bit before jumping into the week ahead.  I like to relax with some art and stamping supplies and paper.  
I used PRICKLY, the fun cactus stamp from the August release, for my card today.

For my background, I used a Kaleidacolor multi-color stamp pad, and rolled an acrylic brayer over the pad, then rolled it onto matte-coated paper.  I continued rolling and applying the ink to the paper several times until I reached the desired intensity.  I added some gold ink to the mix for a little pizzazz.

I stamped the image onto the background, and then again onto a piece of scrap white watercolor paper.  I watercolored the cactus using inktense pencils, then fussy-cut it and added it to the card over the stamped image.
