Everything grows with love...Close to My Heart Stuck on You

Good morning!  I have created a cacti garden card using Close to My Heart Stuck on You stamp and die set.  I purchased this a while ago but just now got around to playing with it. 

This close up has truer colors.

Here is another version.  I used the new Distress Oxide inks in Iced Spruce and Cracked Pistachio with a water brush to color the cacti.  I stamped and embossed the image with a color called storm to keep a soft look without comprimising the definition of the lines.  I am fond of this ink and embosses great.
