Nature at Fashionable Stamping
The theme this fortnight over at Fashionable Stamping Challenges is 'Nature' which you can interpret anyway you like, flowers, butterflies, grass, birds or a scene, it really is up to you as long as you include at least one real stamp on your creation, and don't forget, there is a Gift Certificate for the winner from our sponsor, Marina at Cottage Crafts.
For my card I cut a square panel inked up a sky and then stamped with some grass stamps from Hobby Art using Peeled Paint and Crushed Olive for the stems and Dusty Concord for the tops - to look like lavender and then spritzed with water for a softer watercolour effect. This was layered onto a purple mat.I decided to make the base of the card in a similar way, with the panel as a 'highlight'.
The rest of the DT have made some gorgeous creations, so if you need some inspiration, please do take a look. you won't be disappointed.
This is a scheduled post, (hope it works) as we are away this weekend at a Wedding in Northumberland. I do hope it stays fine for the Bride as its such a lovely venue with beautiful grounds, it would be a shame if all the photos had to be taken indoors - keep your fingers crossed.
