Two posts in one day! How about that. I hadn’t intended to post again today but this afternoon I had a little play time and made a card for 2 challenges and need to post them before it is too late. So here you go.
This card is for a Facebook colour challenge group I have just joined. This is the Colour INKspirations. The colour challenge this week is Bermuda Bay, Mint Macaron and Daffodil Delight. For this card I also played along with the Freshly Made Sketches #269 Challenge. Check the sketch challenge at Freshly Made Sketches -> HERE. I have to say once you have colours to use and the sketch it doesn’t take that long to put a card together.
This was the final result.
The card is fairly straight forward. To incorporate the Daffodil Delight I stamped the “spots” down the left hand side. I find Daffodil Delight a hard colour to work with but managed to use this here. I have used the set Dragonfly Dreams and the Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits.
To create the Dragonfly: The dragonfly was made in 2 steps so I thought I would tell you about it. Firstly, stamp the dragonfly wings stamp onto Mint Macaron card with Mint Macaron ink then cut it out with the Dragonfly outline Thinlits. Then cut a detailed dragonfly out from Bermuda Bay card. Adhere these both together by sticking just the body part together so you can raise the wings up.
To add a little sparkle I went over the Mint Macaron wings with the Wink of Stella pen and I added some Bermuda Bay sequins to finish the card off.
Here is a close up of the Dragonfly wings so you can see the sparkle.
Check out the stamp set and the Thinlits. You can buy them as a bundle (save 10%). Available for $81.25 AUS. Grab a pack of cardstock perhaps and there you have your $90 and you can go and grab a Sale-A-Bration choice for FREE! Awesome! You can head to my store HERE to check it all out.
Thanks for visiting and I don’t think I will post again today. 🙂
See you soon though,
