Happy Monday, everyone!!! Hope you had a great weekend!!! Though Saturday was a long workday doing projects and writing posts, yesterday was all about rest.....and a little playtime too! I couldn't help but play in my stamp room because of the Featured Stamper challenge over at Splitcoast. Congrats to Janice Melton aka catcrazy! What a fun gallery, with lots of variety.....I finally chose this beautiful CAS (clean and simple) card....what a great design, and perfect to use another new upcoming set by Our Daily Bread designs....this one is "Faithful Friend".
About a month ago, I tried out my alcohol inks for the first time, though I bought them a couple of years ago. (Here is a link to my first card.) Anyhoo....I had experimented with different colors and nearly threw the rejects away, but saved the ink'd papers in my stash for just the right project....these dragonflies!! All I had to do was stamp the dragonflies with Stazon Jet Black onto the alcohol ink'd paper, cut them out and popped them up with foam tape.
