Dragonfly

Hello. Who would have thought I would be back so soon?
Ha, Ha! I'm really on a roll today!
 
It's Less Is More challenge day today and the theme this week is 'Texture'
 
oooh-er! I've already made 5 cards for that challenge and there are still another couple of ideas in my head.
My goodness....think I'll have to lie down soon! All this creativity coming at once is just not normal.
 
Anyway, I've popped on to show one card which used my initial idea, and tomorrow I'll be back with either another card OR a tutorial which 3 of my cards use.
(Not sure which to post yet and whichever one is not lucky will be posted on Monday).
 
 
 The texture on this one comes from pearlescent texture paste through a sweet poppy metal stencil. The sentiment is just heat embossed.
 
I think this photo picks up the texture pretty well
 
 
The dragonfly was made with alcohol inks on acetate.
 
 
Items used:
Sweet Poppy dimension paste - pearlescent
Sweet Poppy stencil - Cornflowers
Docrafts PMA 10096 Sentiment stamp
Stampendous White embossing powder
Alcohol inks - Wild Plum and Stream
Memory Box Willow Dragonfly die
 
 
Thanks so much for looking,
I do hope you'll be back again tomorrow.
 
Hugs,
Sharon xx

That certainly is fabulous texture, and I love how the matted layers pick out the dragonfly colour and pull it together. Lovely!

Oh wow! So happy you stopped by, Sharon. I'm giddy with excitement... fancy meeting a fellow crafter and blogger here in Portugal. Trying to follow you but the wretched button isn't working. Keeps telling me to try again later. And so I shall. Enough chit chat - your card is gorgeous. So perfectly CAS and classy. I just don't get CAS - it takes me hours to produce one. And you make it look so effortless. I shall be back to snoop some more.

p.s. The party was a blast... and birthday girl wore blue hair! :)
