As You See It 105

This week, at As You See It, we've been given a fabulous sketch challenge. I love it when you look at a challenge and you just know what you want to do with it and that's what happened here. I got to use my new favourite stamp set, Awesomely Artistic, so it was even better.

Lost Lagoon and Pear Pizzazz just go so well together, it's unreal. I couldn't resist using them together again for this card.

I created the background using ink and water on an acrylic block, then built it up using a mix of stamping and embossing. I don't usually fussy-cut but that dragonfly was asking for it; so much so that I gave him double-layer wings.

Go over to As You See It and see what the rest of the design team have done with this sketch and join in yourself!
