Welcome to Laurie's sketch challenge at The Paper Players.
I thought I'd take the chance to play around with some of the glorious new colours Stampin' Up have brought out as part of their colour revamp. I've used Gorgeous Grape, Granny Apple Green and a touch of Shaded Spruce. I've mixed the three colours in my water-coloured, smooshed background then overstamped in Gorgeous Grape and Shaded Spruce.
The dragonfly is cut from Gorgeous Grape. I've made her underwings by stamping and copper embossing the matching stamp, die cutting it out and putting it underneath. I embossed the sentiment in copper to pick up that touch of opulence.
We'd love to see what you do with Laurie's super sketch. You can see what the rest of the design team have done with it here.
