Father's Day Cactus Card with Distress Pencils

 Time for some messy watercolor! This weekend I took Jenn Shurkus's Distress Watercolor Pencil technique class. I have so many great backgrounds from the class, and turned one of them into a succulent themed Father's Day card.

The card started with this background from the class. I used a Tim Holtz stencil Measured with Hero Arts Paste. I then watercolored it with Distress pencils in Vintage Photo and Salvaged Patina.

The succulents are from Hero Arts Cactus Fancy Die set. Each piece was cut from watercolor cardstock and also painted with Distress Pencils. 

I backed the succulents on some Vellum so they wouldn't get lost in the cool background. The sentiment was stamped in Espresso Ink and is from a Lawn Fawn set called Dad and Me.

Wishing you a crafty week ahead! Thanks for stopping by :)
