It's Just in Case Thursday here on my blog. The day my Border Buddy, Patsy Waggoner, and I share a card we have copied from one of our current publications or used to inspire us for a new project design..
CASE = Copy and Share Everything
Today my post could have been subtitled Just A Guess because I'm not certain how the concept artists made the original card from the photograph so I had to guess at some of the elements. The original card is featured on page 26 of the Occasions Catalogue.
It's so easy to pull colours together when you look at the Designer Series Paper you are using because Stampin' Up! has already taken the guess work out of it for you. In this case I used the Cupcakes and Carousels Designer Series Paper Stack.
The stack includes:
- 48 sheets, 4 each of 12 double-side designs
- 6" x 6"
- Acid Free, Lignin Free
- Bermuda Bay, Calypso Coral, Early Espresso, Peekaboo Peach, So Saffron, Very Vanilla
I tore the Designer Paper and glued it to the top of my Whisper White piece and then sponged So Saffron ink along the tear line and down the paper to about 2" from the bottom. This photo shows the die cut wings under the die cut stamped dragonfly. I just attached the top dragonfly with a strip of dimensionals so the wings were floating free.
Just a reminder that when you purchase the Dragonfly Dreams Photopolymer Stamp set together with the Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits Dies in a bundle you save 10%! And I love this stamp set and die so much it is the featured products in the February Border Buddy FREE card program.
The little specs are flicks of Gold Wink of Stella to add some fun antique detail.
I stamped some of the dot images in Bermuda Bay and some in Versamark and applied White Emboss Powder and heat set which created a resit technique to the sponged Pool Party.
I hope you enjoyed my card today. Hop on over to Patsy's post for today and see what she has created…it's a secret for me so I love to check her blog out too!
