Nature: Discover Your World!
Greetings! It is hard to believe another fortnight has rolled around, and here we are with a new challenge at Fashionable Stamping Challenge. This time around, our challenge is to make a project with a theme around "Nature." Now you could go one of many directions: Butterflies, flowers, trees, mushrooms and on and on! I chose birds, on of my absolute favorites. I began by layering a background panel to my card base. The panel was monoprinted using a GelliArts plate. The fern-like stamps on the panel are from Hero Arts. The rest of the images are from Artistic Outpost and were stamped with Black StazOn ink onto Ranger Specialty Paper. This was the first time I ever used the Specialty Paper and I was very happy with the results. The images are very crisp and detailed. The images were colored with Distress Markers and the edges were distressed with Old Paper Distress Ink. The vintage button and liquid pearls were from my stash. The white jute and black burlap string are from the Funkie Junkie Boutique. My Design Team Sisters have once again come up with spectacular inspiration pieces for your enjoyment. I hope you will pop on over and take a look, leave them so love and then submit an inspiring piece of your own! Please remember that Digis are not permitted, as we are a stamping challenge. Thanks so much for dropping by! Best wishes, Yvonne
