Hens and Chicks, Chicks and Hens.....

 SOS Headquarters

Hello everyone: The new SHOPPING OUR STASH challenge's theme for this time around is MAKE YOUR MARK, that means you must use markers to color your images.
This is the card I made and I hope you get inspired to come and play along.

I adore Succulents and this particular one from a Power Poppy set called Sassy Succulents. This particular Succulent is very hardy and grows beautifully.
I stamped the image on watercolor paper with Stazon black ink and colored with SU markers (Old Olive, Garden Green, Rich Razzleberry and Chocolate Chip)


This is how the INSIDE of my card looks like.

The sentiment and the images are from the same set.

I hope you decide to join my teammates and I and "Make Your Mark" in our gallery.

I want to play along with the following challenges.
