CI #4 - Dragonfly Dreaming

Welcome to week 4 of Colour INKspiration, isn't the inspiration image this week just gorgeous? The Stampin' Up! colours are:

  • Delightful Dijon
  • Elegant Eggplant
  • Whisper White
  • Crushed Curry 
I have been playing a bit recently with my Dragonfly Dreams stamp set and thought it would be great for this challenge.  I discovered that there is a cute little dragonfly in the Awesomely Artistic stamp set that is just a bit smaller and worked perfectly stamped onto the DSP background in Elegant Eggplant that I stamped off on scrap paper to take the darkness from the colour.  I had a good deal of fun layering the dotted image from Dragonfly Dreams in all three of the main colours onto the bottom and sides of the DSP background.

I used a lace doily sponged with Elegant Eggplant and layered the gold doily on top, adding some black metallic thread behind it.  The card reminds me of a dragonfly hovering on a lillypad with the reflections of other dragonflies flying overhead.

I decorated the inside of the card with a full strength little dragonfly and some of the speckley dots.

Time to hop on over to see what Simone has been inspired to create this week using this fabulous colour combo.

If you would like to join us in the challenge or just to get inspired by the many wonderful entries each week head on over to the Facebook Page.

Happy Stamping


  1. The gold doily just sets off the whole card nicely I really love this Mon x

  2. Stunning Monique - what beautiful texture! I always forget about stamping on DSP! Kelly x

  3. What a beautiful card. I love the colouring on the dragonfly.

  4. Oh, my! I LOVE that you have used that DSP as a base for your gorgeous splattering of stamped images. The foil doily really makes the dragonfly 'pop'.

  5. Wow, the stamped DSP looks amazing, but those beautiful doilies frame the dragonfly to perfection.

  6. I love the effect you have created by stamping on the DSP Monique. Such a great background for your doily panel.

  7. SO brilliant! Even though everyone has used the same colours, the uniqueness of everyone's projects are amazing!

  8. The DSP with stamping looks fabulous, lovely card, Monique.

  9. So very striking! The DSP being used as a stamping base has lent this a gorgeous vintage quality x

  10. Lovely card Monique. I love the way you have used the spots stamp in that set. Just fantastic.

  11. Such a lovely card Monique! I love these colours with this layout!

  12. Beautiful, and so striking, Monique. x
