Sweet Stamps-Anything Goes

Anything goes is this week's challenge at Sweet Stamps- we would love to see what you create!  Please take a moment to drop by the blog to see all of the DT cards for inspiration!


 I had a blast challenging myself to create with no stamping........ I used some great Dragonfly stickers mounted onto a sticky sheet and micro fine glitter was added to the sticky area.  I cut out around the edges of the dragonflies.  Next, I colored the dragonflies with Copic markers- using yellow, green and a yellow/red color.  I added dimensionals under the wings (close to the body) to give the dragonfly wings 3-D dimension.

 The flower and leaf die cuts are by Marianne Designs. The flower is from white cardstock and colored with R32 Copic marker. For the bottom layer, I used the negative of the flower die and traced it on the  Coordinations cardstock  Berry Reds-Raspberry and cut it out.  The top of the flower has shimmer added with a Copic Spica in clear.  Over that, I added sugar microbeads glued on with Crystal effects.

 The bottom brown color is Coordinations cardstock  in Sandy Tans. The DSP is Bo Bunny Vicki.
The stitching in brown is to accent the brown in the DSP. The ribbon is SU.
