Birthday Cacti

Back again!

This time with a card I made using one of the images I colored during Kathy Racoosin's 30 Day Coloring Challenge!
I had an itch to do some watercoloring, and I just love using distress inks with that technique.  And since I live in the desert I thought watercolored cacti would be appropriate! ;)

I layered and masked the cactus from this Hero Arts, Stamp Your Own Cactus set, and created this little desert scene.  The orange bloom is from the Simon Says Stamp Succulents set.

Birthday Cactus

I kept everything one layer except for the flower (because I forgot to add it while I was stamping & masking- oops!) Finished it off with a sentiment and sequins of course!

Thanks for swinging by!


  1. I hadn't seen this set yet, but I love it and you've made a GORGEOUS card with it. Love your watercoloring!

  2. Love your little cactus family Lysa! I winter in Arizona & the cacti are usually just starting to bloom when we leave Apr.1st...they are so beautiful! I found your blog through PPC. Hope you will come over & check mine out.
    Hugs, Renee
