ART FROM THE ROAD: Sunday Postcard Art (02-26-17)

I am sorry to have missed last week's Sunday Postcard Art challenge, but I was sicker than I have been in years and just was not able to participate. I am much improved this week, so have given the Sunday Postcard Art challenge this week a try! Jenn is our host this week and she has chosen BUTTERFLIES as the challenge theme. I have broadened that theme to include dragonflies here.

I began by rubbing several shades of blue from my Distress Ink "mini's" onto my craft mat, then spraying with water. I dragged a 4x6" piece of white cardstock (because I wanted a mat finish) through the wet ink. I dried that with my heat tool, then repeated the process with Squeezed Lemon but this time adding less color and water. Once that second layer was dry, I stamped my dragonfly using Salty Ocean then added my dragon text using Archival Jet Black. Both stamps are from Stampotique Originals. Finally, I added Wink of Stella (clear) to the wings and body of my dragonfly to a bit of shimmer and shine! The text stamp is a bit difficult to read on the scanned version so you can read it here...





Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you will take some time this week to play along with this fun art challenge. You can find the details here.

Cheers!
