Monochrome Dragonfly CAS Card (Crafty Creations Challenges #291)

Hi everyone :-D 

It´s time for a new challenge at Crafty Creations Challenges.

Our theme for this fortnight is #291 - Embossing.

Our sponsor for this challenge is SLS Lines, whit a great prize for one random winner: 3 single digital images of winner's choice or $10 worth digital merchandise (papers and cliparts) from the store.

For this challenge I made this Monochrome Dragonfly CAS (Clean and Simple) Card, using our sponsor's lovely image 'Dragonfly'.

Image is paper pieced and I used 6 images for this card.
I printed 4 images on green paper and two on white paper. I colored and shaded pieces I needed, fussy cut them, colored edges with black permanent pen and glued all pieces together. Here is a photo of all pieces I used.

I don't have any tool for any kind of embossing, so I used embossed cardstock panel my friend Kristina from Sweden sent me. I cut strip of embossed cardstock and glued it on a card base.

At the end, I glued white panel with the image on the card base and added gloss resin on dragonfly's wings and dots to create glossy accents.

Card dimensions are 101 mm x 133 mm (4" x 5 1/4").

  • SLS Lines 'Dragonfly' digital stamp
