I used Brushos on the background, Scarlet and Brilliant Red, Ultramarine and Lemon. I also coloured the cactus with the Brushos using a waterbrush, and they covered the image well considering the background was quite a bright colour, although where I stamped in the middle was lighter.
I used orange, yellow and red for the flowers and yellow with the emerald green for the cactus itself. I added white in places using a gel pen for highlights, and shaded around the cactus base with some brown to ground it. I also darkened the yellow around the cactus itself to make it stand out more from the background.
I finished by adding the sentiment using Black Archival and heat set again using the Clear Gloss EP. I die cut it using a Crealies Pierced Rectangle and backed it with a snippet of black card before mounting it on to an approximately 7" x 5" white card.
Thank you for joining me today.
