CAS Dragonflies Sympathy Card
A last minute entry to the CAS Mixup July Challenge.
After many, many tries I finally got a card made with crinkled tissue paper in colors that I liked! Here I used Distress Inks in Shaded Lilac and Peacock Feathers. The tissue paper I have is really thin, so this is done with two layers after watching Loll's Video technique a dozen times. It was fun trying out several types, but am running out of July days to enter the challenge!
The card base is a NBUS to me, Stampin'Up's Thick Card Stock in Whisper White. It makes a nice card base, I think. I forgot to use sticky back paper when I die cut the dragon flies, so glued them down with Glossy accents. The tissue paper is just folded over and glued over a snippet of white card stock. For the sentiment, which is an old one from a company called Rubber Stamped, I again used the Shaded Lilac ink. The card will be added to my stash in case I need to send a sympathy card. My choice is the die cut which is also from SU called Detailed Dragonfly.
I've been missing in action, getting ready for some hip surgery. I'll be fine and as soon as I can sit comfortably at my craft desk and computer, I'll be back. Thanks for visiting.
