I purchased a cool cacti stamp from Scraps of Love while I was in Phoenix. To me it needed to be black embossed. Since I didn't have any black embossing powder with me I made this card this week here at home. I have to admit that the Scraps of Love store has a HUGE variety of stamping and scrapbooking products and one can easily spend a small fortune shopping!

After embossing I used my Spellbinders Jane Davenport Mermaid Markers to color. I scribbled the colors desired on my glass mat then used my Blending Brushes to add water then apply. I then trimmed to the size I wanted and layered on a piece of Black Licorice card stock. After completing the card I added some Nuvo Jewel Drops Strawberry Coulis to the flower centers. I love how this dries translucent!
I really should have used a detail white embossing powder for the sentiment but at least it can be read. I'm not very good at this kind of watercoloring but I think it turned out pretty good.
