Dreamweaver's Flora and Fauna Challenge Goes Under the Sea

Welcome to the merry month of May! The Dream Team are challenging you this month to a "Flora and Fauna" theme! Considering most of the Dreamweaver designs incorporate both of these in the huge variety of stencils, you should have no problem playing along with our challenge this month! As usual, link your creations at the end of the Dream It Up! blog post, or at the end of our posts where it says, "Add Your Link".

My flora and fauna are going under the sea this week...

I created a beautiful inked background using Memories Mists on glossy cardstock with a bit of water spray for movement. The Open Fish design was traced with Sakura Micron pens in .01 and .05, with "Sten-tangling" added, before covering the fish in Glossy Accents and tiny, clear holeless beads. The tiny beads add to the watery effect. Using portions of the Leafless Tree Die in black cardstock as coral, and some soft ink-stenciling of its matching stencil design, I was able to create dimension as well. One of my favorite parts of this design is that the beads cover a multitude of errors in my "Sten-tangling", so no one needs to know that my lines were less than perfect...unless YOU tell them!

For the love of flora and fauna, visit the rest of the "A" team this week, and leave some sweet comments:


I have seen this card in person and it is stunning Pammie! Love the details in the "tangled" fish. ....but adding the beads is genius (of course).

I'm so loving 'sten-tangling' and thing we ought to feature that technique. Your card is so stinkin' cool between the tangling and the leafless tree bits...you are amazing!

Oh, I LOVE this! I'm very fond of that fish! I like how you added the tiny beads to give it some cool fishy texture! It's gorgeous! Love the green!
