Gansai Tambi Pearl Background with Jane's Doodles Cactus - VIDEO

Hello Everybody! I hope you've all had a great weekend and the weather was nice wherever you are. I'm here today to share with you a card I made for my lovely Copic teacher. OK, a bit of a Teacher's Pet, but I had a little something to give her and wanted a card to go with it. The theme had to be cacti, so I had no hesitation in using my NBUS Jane's Doodles set that I got back in February.

I also took the opportunity to use my new Gansai Tambi Pearl Watercolours to create the background. They are deliciously shiny and work really well with the other Gansai Tambi paints. I love them, they make lovely loose watercolour backgrounds like here.

I stamped and coloured the cactus with my Copics (well I have to show her how much I've been practising), fussy cut (!!!!!!) and popped up on foam tape on the background panel. I've attached it to a fawn A2 card base.

I've a video you can watch below or on my YouTube channel in HD on how the card came together.
