Dragonfly Dreams in Bermuda Bay


Do you ever CASE someone else's card? I do! Typically I CASE when I have a new stamp set that I love, but I'm a bit intimidated by the set because I've already seen soooo much great stuff that I'm sure I'll never be able to make anything as good. Sound familiar? CASEing is a great way to get the set inky and build up some confidence.

Today's card is a CASE of this card by Carolyn King. I didn't change very much at all, because I loved her card so much.

While Carolyn used Enamel Dots on her card, I used clear sequins. I really liked the subtle touch they added.

Carolyn also mentioned that she coloured her wings using the rock 'n' roll method. I chose to colour mine with the new Watercolour Pencils and then blend them using my Clear Wink Of Stella pen. I stamped the dragonfly in Momento ink so I didn't smudge it using the Wink Of Stella. Using the pencils allowed me to use Pacific Point, Old Olive and Bermuda Bay to colour the wings.

Carolyn didn't show the inside of her card on her blog, so I was on my own for my inside. I didn't stamp a sentiment, so that the card is versatile enough for several different occasions.

Bye for now,
