Wplus9 - August Released - Flora & Fauna 2



Hello Everyone...
Today is all about FLORA & FAUNA 2 stamps sets and dies.
This set is just beautiful :) really love the hummingbirds and butterflies on this set, simply perfect for watercoloring those gorgeous images.

I also used the Hand Lettered Thanks for the sentiment.


I stamped the images on the card base with a very light ink, antique linen. Then watercolor it, really have lots of inspiration on Pinterest looking for humming bird colors. They are so beautiful in really life, Dawn really captured designing this gorgeous birds.

Once the watercoloring is done on the panel. I then watercolor some of the images on a separate watercolor paper then fussy cut and adhere on the panel for dimension.

I also added some sequins from Pretty Pink Posh in Marigold in 4mm and 6mm.


Another close-up



Here's the full view of the card.



To begin my second card, I stamped the sentiment first then stamped the flowers close on the sentiment. This will act as a guide before adhering the thanks die-cut.


The look of the thanks die-cut once its adhere on the card front. It gives that pretty effect that the sentiment looked as if its part of the card base. The Hand Lettered Thanks die was die-cut 4 times and adhere with glue to give that effect.


The butterflies are watercolored as well.





Here's the full view.


I hope you enjoyed!
Thank you so much for stopping by

Have WONDERFUL day :)

  5. "I hope you enjoyed" … Joni, you made my jaw not just drop to the floor, it's STILL there! Holy smokes, your cards are awesome. Actually, they are more than awesome, but not being an English native speaker, I can't come up with an adjective to properly describe the awesomeness :) I love your coloring on the first card and the bold white sentiments on the second card are beautiful. This is the Wplus9 release I've been looking forward to most out of all the releases so far, and you've just made me even more excited about getting these stamps and dies. Thank you for sharing these two pieces of art!
