Fashionable Flora and Fauna

Time for a new challenge theme over at Fashionable Stamping and it’s my turn to choose. I would like you to share with us your projects using Flora or fauna s your theme (or both!). Flora is the goddess of flowers in Roman mythology and Faun is the corresponding term for animal life.  I chose Flora as my inspiration and made a card. The background strip is created with a wash of inktense block colour , some perfect pearls mist for shimmer and a fern stamp.
Esther58For the focal section I used a technique from Craft Stamper with Inktense blocks and stamps on water colour card. After stamping the flowers I masked them and used distress inks to stamp some background details.  Esther60
I had a bit left over so I made a little tag to match.esther59
The rest of the FSC team have, as always, made some beautiful projects for inspiration, so do pay them a visit.  It would be great to have you join our challenge - don't forget we MUST see some stamping, not just Digis, and the winner will be chosen at random and receive a voucher to spend over at FlonzCraft...Happy creating…Esther xx
