Flora & Fauna

Hi everyone I hope you are well I have for you today my challenge post
 for The Artistic stamper the topic for Aprils challenge is Flora & Fauna.

Firstly I stuck torn pieces of Tim Holtz die cut paper onto a craft tag
with cut out gold embossed boarder stamp from The Artistic Stamper.

I then coloured the tag with distress inks in the following colours
Wild honey, Vintage photo, mahogany & Walnut Stain. This was backed onto 
black card and cut with a wavy blade

The flowers were made using card that had been coloured with Distress 
stain spray in the following colours wild honey,frayed burlap, 
mahogany & faded jeans. 

The Artistic Stampers flower power stamp was stamped nine times onto 
the distress coloured card and then cut out & assembled into the flowers.

Once the flowers were made and stuck together I sprayed them 
with Perfect Pearls Heirloom gold.

To finish off I backed it all onto scrap cardboard.
