CAS374 Ombre Dragonflies

Happy Monday!  Today's CAS challenge (CAS374) is to Let your Background Talk.  You can interpret this in different ways, and I chose to use a collage style stamp with script in the background.  This stamp is from Art Neko, and it is part of a sheet with different dragonflies on it.

I used the same collage stamp three times with different colors of Dylusions sprays, and the dragonflies are stamped again, colored, cut out, and adhered to each background with foam tape.  The pink dragonfly was covered with white glitter which actually distracted from the piece, so I sprayed over the glitter with Pink Bubblegum Dylusions spray.

Come play in the challenge with us over in the CAS challenge forum.  Be sure to use keyword CAS374 when you upload your card so we can check it out.  :-)  Enjoy your week!

CAS372 Here for You

I am the hostess for the CAS challenge this week over on SCS, and I am challenging everyone to make a clean and simple card with chipboard on it.  For CAS372, I pulled out some white chipboard frames that I've had for years, and I covered one with some green distress paint.  After the paint dried, I sanded it with a sanding block for that fun distressed look.  I stamped the sentiment from You Got This (Stampin Up) with Chocolate Chip ink and then I adhered the chipboard frame over it.  Some fun stamped flowers were added to the corners.

Want to play along with us?  Share your chipboard CAS card with us over here and use keyword CAS372 when you upload it.  :-)

Framed Dragonfly in Blues

Happy Saturday, everyone!  It's a beautiful spring day here, full of sunshine, and I wanted to share this happy yellow and blue card with you today.  I colored this gorgeous Framed Dragonfly from Art Neko with Polychromos pencils and I added some Wink of Stella to the wings of the dragonfly.

I paired this with a soft yellow background that has been embossed with a dotted circle embossing folder.  Some bold black stripes across the bottom help to ground the image and break up the background.

Enjoy your weekend!
