STAMPlorations Dragonfly

Nothing like entering at the last minute - I made this card for the January Sketch & Theme challenge at STAMPlorations and just had too hard a time sitting at the computer to type up my post! I used the sketch & also the theme of Clean & Simple - leaving white space as a priority, and not going too over-the-top with embellishments:

Supplies: Dragonfly stamp from PSX; sentiment stamp from STAMPlorations; Memento Tuxedo Black ink; Wilted Violet distress ink; Spectrum Noir marker; Sizzix embossing folder; Diamond stickles; random bling

I used a snippet of unused dipped paper that went well with the purple & pink tones for the side panel. The dragonfly was stamped twice, and the wings fussy cut to pop them up. They were coloured with exactly the same marker as the body, and the Stickles turned them this awesome hot pink. Happy unexpected thing! 

You've got just under 24 hours to share your project with STAMPlorations - hurry up!

So pleased you made it in time to the STAMPlorations challenge as I love those sparkly dragonfly wings. Makes me long for the long summer months when the dragon flies emerge and buzz the tops of the reeds. :)

Look at all this shimmery dipped goodness! Possibly only you and I know what I mean by that. :D
