Mother Nature


Sharing a little inspiration today with new May products from Gecko Galz.  I love the organic feel of the A2 sized burlap cards from DCWV and thought the lovely digi stamp from the Gecko Galz  Nature's Muse stamp set would be a perfect match.  I printed the image in brown, colored it with Copics, cut it with a Spellbinders peony (or is it dahlia?) die and inked it with Distress before removing it from the die.  For a bit of contrast, I resized digital paper from the Toile Jolie Paper pack, tore the corners diagonally, distressed the corner sides with a scissors and inked and glued them to opposing corners of the card.  A little more texture with some cheesecloth and alpha stickers for a sentiment and it was done.

I'm entering this in the Lunagirl Mother Challenge, Cards in Envy When Nature Calls, the QKR Stampede Nature Challenge, Frosted Designs All About Mom, Creative Knockouts Distressing and Addicted to Stamps and More Spring with Birds and /or Eggs.
