Dragonflies and Lilies

Good afternoon,

Yipee, it's almost the weekend! I'm looking forward to spending some time in my craft room and, if the weather is good, doing some decorating.

I'm entering this card into the following challenges:-

Simon Says - Easter or Spring with some Glimmer

Cute Card Thursday - Dimension

Pollycraft Monday - Sparkly Things

The main stamp I have used for this card isfrom Creative Expressions (Oasis 231), the swirls are free from a magazine and the sentiment is from the Papertray Ink set "Mega Mixed Messages". I love this set and use it all the time, it was so worth the postage and customs fees!

The image is coloured with Prismacolor pencils using sansador and a paper stump. I stamped the image twice and cut out two additional dragonflies and one lily for layering. I have painted "Stardust" stickles onto the dragonfly wings to add some sparkle.

I hope you have a great weekend.

Hugs, Clare xx

Morning Clare

This is just lovely. You have achieved such depth and dimension to the waterlillies and the corner stamping sets it all off beautifully.

Have a good weekend.
