Flying By To Say Hi



This card is using today's SCS color challenge. We were to use Ruby Red, Pumpkin pie, and Soft Sky. I used Bashful Blue instead since that's what color I sponged the sky. The layout of this card is pretty basic. I wanted to focus on a lot of the stamps in this new set called, Pond Pals. To find out how you can get your own set, email me epayne@glis.cc . I used all of the stamps in the sets besides the frog and the rest of the sentiments. There are 12 total stamps. You probably can't tell from the picture, but there is alot of dimension on this card. First of all, I stamped my dragonfly, then colored him. Then I stamped his wings on acetate, added them to the original body. Then I stamped the head again, colored and cut it out and added it with dimensionals. Lastly, I added googly eyes. The cattails have brown fun flock on them so they are fuzzy. The water ripples are glittery to have the shimmer of water. The fish also has googly eyes. My favorite pad is the lily pad. I have this bucket of bridal confetti from Michael's, so I cut and colored the flowers with SU! markers and assembled them to look like a flower on a lily pad. Cute, huh!?
