Hey all! Hope everyone is doing GREAT so far this year! I've found some more time in the stamp room - yeah! Tonight is a card I created for the color challenge at Color Throwdown. Love the bright colors, but especially at this time of year when everything outside is so drab! Here is the card
And the challenge inspiration. In Stampin' Up! Colors I chose Pineapple Punch, Granny Apple Green, white and black.
The card base is Granny Apple Green with a Basic Black accent layer behind the background of Shimmery White. I stamped that with the dot image from Dragonfly Dreams in both Granny Apple Green and Pineapple Punch. Some angled to the left, some to the right, some overlap. I also ran it through the Big Shot with the Polka Dots Basics Embossing Folder. For the dragonfly, I first took the "solid" wing image and colored with markers. Pineapple on the outside, Granny Apple on the inside. I stamped that on a piece of Shimmery White Cardstock, then stamped the outline of the dragonfly over it with Memento Black. I then picked up the markers again and made both colors darker. After using the Detailed Dragonfly Thinlit to cut it out, I ran over all of the dragonfly with the Wink of Stella to give it LOTS of shimmer. The saying at the bottom was just cut and layered onto Basic Black and attached with dimensionals. A Pineapple Punch 1/8" grosgrain ribbon was wrapped around the card base 5 times, then knotted in the center with a separate piece. Dragonfly attached with mini dimensionals and done.
