Black and White Card Front - Flora and Fauna for Drive By Crafts

by - May 18, 2018

Hi everyone! I'm back today to share the beautifully simplistic Floral Aviary set from Flora and Fauna. Something about all Flora and Fauna sets have such a folksy-elegant look to them. In case you're wondering, I did indeed just create the style name folksy-elegant. ;) 

I knew I wanted to keep most of the florals black and white. The stamps themselves are quite detailed and I didn't want to take away from the beautiful design with too much color. I love the way it looks like it was sketched right there on the card front and thought that adding a lot of color would distract from that somehow. I didn't have to do any masking for this card because I stamped most of them off the edge. It's a great way to create a frame for your card front without needed to mask it all. I decided to use my Zig Real Brush markers in pale green and pale violet to highlight some of the stamps and draw a bit of color into the leaves and florals. To drive home the black and white appearance, I decided to mat the card front with a piece of black card stock.

I stamped the birds included in the set on a spare piece of card stock and decided to color them in completely and fussy cut them out since they would be in the center of the card. I thought it would be a good way to draw attention to the "have a good day" sentiment strip. I finished off the look with some black watercolor splatter and Nuvo Jewel Drops in Pale Periwinkle.

I hope that you've enjoyed learning a bit about how I decided to use the Flora and Fauna Floral Aviara stamp set. I'll see you soon!
