Blue Dragonfly CAS Card (Crafty Creations Challenges #294)

Hi everyone :-D 

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

Our theme for this fortnight is #294 - Four.

Our sponsor for this challenge is SLS Lines, whit a great prize for one random winner.

I used 4 different colors of cardstock paper (white and 3 shades of blue), 4 shades of blue colored pencils, 4 enamel dots, 4 enamel arrows and our sponsor's lovely image 'Dragonfly', and made this Blue Dragonfly CAS (Clean and Simple) Card.

I was inspired with a photo of blue dragonfly, I took 2 years ago when I was visiting Trsteno Arboretum near Dubrovnik.

Image is paper pieced and I used 6 images for this card.

I printed 2 images on a white cardstock paper, 2 on light blue cardstock paper, 1 on medium blue and 1 on dark blue cardstock paper. I colored and shaded pieces I needed with 4 shades of blue colored pencils, fussy cut all pieces, colored edges and 'hidden' parts with black permanent pens and glued all pieces together.

Here is a photo of all pieces I used.

I glued Washi tape on a card base. Love this! :-D

I wanted to add just a little bit of dimension to my card, so I added 3-D foams behind the white panel with image and glued it on the card base.

At the end, I embellished my card with 4 enamel dots and 4 enamel arrows.

Card dimensions are 107 mm x 138 mm (4 1/4" x 5 1/2").
