Here's our inspiration board with a variety of winged things:
And a prize for a random winner:
This Elizabeth Craft "Dragonfly" die set has been sitting in my not-yet-used basket far too long. I thought I'd be using them with flowers, but it somehow never happened, so when this challenge came along I decided to make them my main focus.
I have to show you this photo of the die set so I can 'fess up to what inspired me. Just keeping it simple with an ink-sponged background, water splatters, circle stamps, and some tiny dragonflies.
I used some favorite older Stampin' Up! inks -- Cool Caribbean and Gable Green. Old Hero Arts Box of Dots stamps -- inked mostly on the edges by rolling in the stamp pad and then rolling on the paper. Gold mirrored card stock with Gable Green for the card base. The inked panel is Strathmore Mixed Media Vellum Surface card stock. A seriously quick and easy card to make and lots more fun than I expected it to be.
I'll be looking forward to all the things with wings this challenge inspires. Do check out the wonderful DT cards on the Double D blog, leave some love, and then play along with us. Have a happy day!
