Fashionable Stamping Challenges - Flora & Fauna

Lately, I have been pre-occupied with my Mixed Media projects and it's been a while since I've created a card. The inspiration for the card took me a bit longer than I had expected because I was still in the gesso, wire, fiber paste, canvas, etc., phase but I am very happy with the result!

This card was created for the Fashionable Stamping Challenges #52, Flora & Fauna. It is a 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" card, the first layer was embossed then highlighted with Tim Holtz's Distress Ink, the background was created using a Spellbinders die, the flower image was stamped then painted with the Smooch Pearlized Inks and the Stickles were added in the middle for a little bit of sparkle! The saying was stamped on a piece of heavy card stock that was spritzed with Tattered Angels Glitter Mist and mounted on corrugated stock for dimension. The ribbon was colored with a bit of the Smooch Ink and the clay embellishment on the lower right corner was also painted with the Smooch inks.

Thank you for stopping by and I hope you like my latest project!!! :)
