Bright and Pretty Dragonflies




       It's that time of year again that we come to the Birthday of my favorite twins.  I always do two cards that are the same but different.  This year we have a set of dragon flies.
       Both are on white CS with a white CS base.  The first one I started with Picked Raspberry, Spiced Marmalade, Peacock Feathers and Shaded Lilac.  I put the ink on the craft sheet and added water and dragged the paper through the colors.  I didn't really get the effect I wanted so I added more of the same colors with a sponge.  The second one I just went right for the sponging and used Wild Honey, Picked Raspberry and Fired Brick.
         The dragon fly is an old mounted rubber stamp that I've had forever.
         I cut the squares on the diagonal with a Fiskars free moving cutter.  I stamped the one sentiment with Wild Honey and added clear embossing powder over it.  The other I use Mermaid Lagoon.







I would like to add these cards to the following card challenges if I may please:
CASology:  Cuts
The Card Concept: Fresh and Bold using CAS
Let's Craft and Create: Things with Wings.
Through the Purple Haze:  Happy Anything.
Sugar Pea Designs: ATG/ATG










Thank you so very much for stopping by.
Have an amazing day.

Pretty cards Dawn - love a spritzed background behind a black stamp...those dragonflies look like they'll fly straight off the card!

Wow, these backgrounds are so beautiful -- on both cards! How sweet to make similar cards for twins, yet each one is unique. Thanks for joining us at CASology this week!
