New stuff arrived earlier in the week. As I was playing with Dragonfly Dreams, the set I was most desperate to have, a great idea for a card based on the sketch at Global Design Project came to me.
I could see what was required: a background in the top leftish area, a vertical and a tag for the greeting. All was clear in my head. But. But as I went to attach the tag to the twine I just couldn't do it. It seemed so wrong!
So, a dilemma. Had I changed it too much or was this acceptable modification? The card was definitely inspired by the sketch although not ruled by it. I decided to share anyway, especially after I had a good look at the Design Team offerings and saw that some of them did away with the tag too.
I cut two of the flight of dragonflies, one in Early Espresso and one in Pear Pizzazz. I set the Espresso dragonflies into the outline on the Pear, backed it with Crumb Cake and inlaid the little green bits separating the dragonflies. Then I gave the Crumb Cake a lick of clear Wink of Stella, which you can see in the close-up.
I added in some raindrop splatters to ground the flight of dragonflies.
And a peek inside, showing the other half of the sentiment stamp.
This adorable set, and the co-ordinating dies, will be available in the new Occasions catalogue in the New Year.
