Southwest Christmas Cacti with Art Impressions & Therm O Web


Hi Friends, happy Wednesday!
Last week, the team at Therm O Web joined up with our friends at Art Impressions, sharing projects featuring AI’s latest and greatest holiday stamp collection. I had two cards to share featuring the adorable Southwest Christmas set. I shared one with you last week, and today I have the second.

Whereas last week’s card was a bit nontraditional with its neutral colors, this time I went with a very traditional holiday color palette of red and green. But still with a bit of a twist from the usual with that trio of cutie pie cacti. We sure don’t have any of those here in North Carolina, but I think they are so fun. Those of you in the Southwest know what you’re getting for Christmas from me this year!

I used a waterbrush to go over all the inks, and added a light wash of color for sky and ground. I then dressed up the bows and bells with a bit of Clear Wink of Stella.

Art Impressions is giving away their entire new collection to one of you, and it’s still not too late to enter! Click HERE to enter the rafflecopter prize giveaway on the Therm O Web blog.
