CAS Colours & Sketches Challenge #206

This week Karen has a colour challenge for us.

My first thoughts was flowers, but I decided not to go this obvious route and opted for dragonflies (probably equally as obvious) instead.

I used an Island Indigo card base and layered a piece of Watermelon Wonder cardstock on top. The stamps all come from the Dragonfly Dreams stamp set. The stamp set has a couple of two-step stamps - one the dragonfly and the other a bumblebee.

For the card, I 

  • Stamped the dragonfly outline in Island Indigo onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock, and then 
  • Stamped off before I stamped the wings, also in Island Indigo. 
  • Another dragonfly was stamped the same way onto a scrap of Whisper White cardstock and then die cut it out using the co-ordinating Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits.
  • The dots at the bottom of the card are stamped off Flirty Flamingo and the sentiment is in Watermelon Wonder.
  • Clear Wink of Stella was applied to the second dragonfly before I glued the body onto of the image on the card front.

Don't forget that you have until next Monday evening (11pm) to enter this week's challenge and I hope you give it a go.

  5. LOL - yes, a lot of us on the team did go the obvious route with flowers, so it's nice to see how your card stands out from the rest! :) I love the dimension you've given your dragonfly to help it seem to come to life.

  6. Love the way you stamped your dragonfly, Fiona! Gorgeous dimension with those wings. What a delightful card!
