More Dragonfly Dreaming.

Hello again :-) We had an Inspiration challenge at Just Add Ink a week or so ago and I enjoyed doing some ink "smooshing" to create a colourful background. You can see my original post here. I made several of these backgrounds and have now turned these into cards too. These have a similar but slightly more CAS design which does show off the background more but I can't decide which I like best :-)

The splotches are created by inking up a small piece of acetate or Window Sheet, and spritzing with water and then pressing it onto water colour paper. Thanks to the water, they are different each time. The sparkly dragonfly is layered onto 3 layers of white to give it a little more height.

And here is another very similar version with a different base colour :-) 

This Bermuda version has already found a home, going in the post for a lovely friend's recent birthday :-)

Card stock: Bermuda Bay, Daffodil Delight, Whisper White, Basic Black, Bermuda Bay Glimmer (Saleabration)
Inks: Bermuda Bay, Rich Razzleberry, Daffodil Delight, Versamark
Stamps: Sunshine Sayings
Accessories: Big Shot, Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits, White EP, Clear Wink of Stella, Metallic Sequin Assortment.
Non SU: Distress Watercolor Card Stock (Tim Holtz)

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you are enjoying the Easter break. Don't forget to check out this week's Just Add Ink post here and you might like to pop back again soon to see some Easter themed projects :-)

Happy stamping until next time,
