Smooches from a Prickly Pear in Watercolor

This months challenge from Three Amigos is actually Prickly Pear.  This started out as a Zentangle Inspired Art (ZIA) tile that I thought would fit this challenge perfectly. I tried to match the colors as closely as I could.
I actually drew the cactus myself since I didn't have any cactus stamps (yet, LOL). It is a prickly pear cactus, many of whom have lived in my various yards over the years here in the Phoenix area until I saw how quickly they multiplied!

The sentiment comes from Paper Smooches, Smooches.

Do take the time to pop over to see this new challenge group and join in the fun!

Thanks for stopping by. I love reading your comments!

  3. The watercolor (painted?) background sets off your hand drawn cactus nicely! The zentangle is cool too! Thanks for joining us at Three Amigos!

    1. I'm getting braver about drawing very simple things again, Janet. I actually used to be really good at one time, but that was a different lifetime ago.
