This week the Create with Connie & Mary Challenge is a sketch. I knew I wanted to use a patterned paper which made me think of the Painted Seasons DSP which is available as a level 1 Sale-A-Bration choice and a level 2 Sale-A-Bration choice paired with the Painted Seasons stamp set.
What to use for the little accents? I thought about butterflies, birds and then it came to me...
Dragonflies! I have been trying to look at my stamps, punches and dies from the annual catalog to mix in with my newer products. I haven't used the Detailed Dragonfly thinlits in quite a while! I cut them out in Early Espresso and knew i needed to fill in the wings. I glued down the dragonflies and then cut out another set using Sparkle Glimmer paper. I filled in the wings with the Sparkle Glimmer paper. This was pretty but the Glimmer paper was too bright so using a cotton swab I colored the wings using Petal Pink ink. This toned down the white and it worked better with the other colors on the card.
I added the "thanks" which I cut in Early Espresso card stock using the Well Written framelits (2019 Occasions catalog). These framelits are some of my favorites, as you have probably figured out since I use them a lot.
Be sure to check out what the other members of the Create with Connie & Mary Design team created using this sketch.
Remember Sale-A-bration ends in just a few days!
