Inspired by a Switchplate!
As I have mentioned in a couple of other posts, Sue over at StampnDaly challenged me to an exchange to make a project with supplies she sent. She also sent a really neat shell card for me to post on my blog as well. I had already started on my main image and it fit perfectly with today's SCS Inspiraton Challenge! Stef (the IC Hostess) chose some beautiful enameled pieces for us to choose from, and I chose the dragonfly switchplate HERE.
I stamped the dragonfly from Measure of a Life in Black Stazon, and then colored it using Pastel Chalks, which I hadn't used in a really long time (like over 2 years, maybe!). I sponged around the outside and distressed the edges using the Cutter Tool. Sue had sent me the paper and some buttons, so I stamped the background piece with Versamark ink, using a stamp from Delicate Dandelions before I layered those pieces, including the Soft Sky DP (which I wrapped with Sulky Silver Metallic thread - yes, it's Sulky, but I think it should be Silky! lol) and then added a Certainly Celery button as my accent.
Thanks, Sue, for such a fun challenge! Sorry it took me so long to get it done! I hope you like what I created! Here is Sue's fun shell card, and you can check out her blog to see how she made it! I hope to make more cards soon with the remaining supplies!
Thanks for stopping by!
