WPlus9 August Release - Flora & Fauna 2 Plus a Giveaway!

Hello and welcome to the WPlus9 August Release!
The full reveal is already up here.  Did you sneak a peek yet?
There are tons of new products coming on August 5th.

Today I'm here to share with you a card I made featuring the Flora & Fauna 2 stamp set & the coordinating dies.  As if the first wasn't gorgeous enough, Dawn has designed another absolutely stunning set. 


Flora & Fauna 2 is great for coloring, watercoloring and stamping & die cutting from your favorite cardstock.  What I'm most excited about is it using it along with different techniques!  Here I heat embossed with white on watercolor paper, then did a clean wash of water over them and added some watercolor paint.  I wasn't careful, I just let the water move the color.  Once the pink dried, I did the same thing with purple watercolor paint.  I thought the Ink Splats stamped in Bloomsberry ink worked perfectly with my design, along with the new Strictly Sentiments 5 (available on Aug. 5th!)  

This is the full set...





GIVEAWAY...
