I'm finally back with another card, apologies for the lack of posts this last week.
Although I've had no time for crafting I've had a real boost this week from various challenge sites where I've received some shout outs. I can't quite believe it but its really made my week! I've updated the details here.
So, back to today and this morning I've enjoyed making this bright and cheerful card to add to my stash, and have managed to combine a few challenges too.
This little dragonfly and sentiment are from a stamp set I recently purchased from eBay. I chose some bright patterned paper from a retired Stampin' Up set and coloured the dragonfly with co-ordinating ProMarkers. I wanted to fussy cut the dragonfly and sit him on top of the circular die but his antennas posed a problem! So I stamped him once and cut him out with a circular die, keeping the antenna and tail within the circle. I then stamped him a second time, coloured him in and then fussy cut him out, cutting these parts off, before adhering the coloured image over the top, with his wings protruding off the edge :)
I added some definition to the paper by framing it with some coloured cardstock, and rounded the bottom corner of the card to echo the circular die and curved sentiment.
