Monochromatic colors, shade, tones are the theme for the June A Blog Named Hero Challenge.  One of my latest Hero Arts purchases is the Succulent Bouquet from the summer release.  It's the perfect size for a mini slimline card.


I stamped my bouquet in black ink and embossed with clear powder onto watercolor paper.  Loosely watercolored with gray (only the flowers) and die cut when dry.  I added shimmer to the flowers, but it doesn't show up in the photo.  Adhered to the card base (3.25x6.25), only gluing the large flowers.  Added the sentiment, silver sequins and black Nuvo drops in the flower centers.  In case you're interested, a #7 coin envelope works perfectly for this size card.

I hope to see you in our challenge gallery this month - there are always two gift cards for the winners.

Thanks for visiting today.
