CAS dragonflies

I've been digging about in my old stamps, really looking for things to use for Darnell's NBUS challenge, but I've also dug out a few old friends that haven't seen the light of day for ages. This lovely dragonfly background stamp from Hampton Arts is one of them.

I made the background by scribbling various shades of pink and blue markers onto acrylic blocks and picking up the colour with a waterbrush  to paint individual diagonal stripes on the die cut square. When the paint was dry I stamped the dragonflies then edged the whole thing in black. The "hello" sentiment is stamped with a freebie stamp from Making Cards magazine.

I am sharing this with

  6. What a great find Jane! The dragonfly stamp looks brilliant against the gorgeous pastel background and the colours you chose to use are so beautiful.
