Detailed Dragonfly in Neutrals - Fancy Friday Blog Hop

Welcome to the Fancy Friday blog hop! We're a group of past and present Stampin' Up! Artisans that bring you new challenges each month for your inspiration. This month we have a neutrals theme - mostly white with another neutral colour in the mix.

It's December. So when I sat down to make this card I wanted a therapeutic project with a little more layering than my usual stuff. Amongst all the busy-ness this time of year this craft session did me a world of good! This card has a few sneaky peek products from our upcoming Occasions Catalogue coming January 4th. So exciting!

Quick Tips: 
1) If you're using a lot of white, think TEXTURE. This is pretty easy to achieve with different papers, dies and my all-time fav, Linen Thread.
2) For a subtle sketchy background with a difference, rub on a Watercolour Pencil and go over it with a Blender Pen to smudge it.

Supplies Used:
Stamps: Suite Sentiments (out Jan 4th)
Inks: Basic Grey Archival, Smokey Slate
Papers: Whisper White Thick, Vellum, Watercolour Paper, Basic Grey, Whisper White, Delicate Doilies, Copper Foil Sheets
