Welcome to another CASEing the Catty Sunday Blog Hop, this week we are taking our inspiration from pages 4 - 7 of the Sale-A-Bration Catalogue.
I was drawn to the card in the above image from page 5 of the catalogue, not only in the layout but also in the DSP stack and natural feel to the card.
I haven't had a good play yet with my new Dragonfly Dreams stamp set, and this was the perfect opportunity. I was a bit worried with the wings overhanging the edge of the card, and was going to trim them off, but once finished I decided to leave them as they are. The sentiment is from Oh So Succulent which was out on my table and was just the right size for this card. I hadn't realised that the set had a Mother's Day sentiment so that was a nice find!
I had such fun using the Watercolor Pencils on the dragonfly wings, I was trying to capture the range of colours you see as they flash in the sun. To add some extra luminescence I finished off the wings with a touch of Clear Wink of Stella, but haven't tried to capture it in the photo because it never does it justice.
