Happy Hippity Hoppity Hangover!!
I can't wait to get my hands on that new July KOTM!! It's so adorable and the HH DT blog hop was awesome today. (Yes, I still need to dig out my thesaurus and replace my "awesome" addiction with something else.) Don't forget to check back in at Unity Stamp Co. for this weekend's specials. So good you just can't pass them up!
Well, let's get this party started!
I got a bit backed up today (with the new Memories Always-Forever design team thing and all...see the last post for the exciting news!!) so I tried to kill both Unity HH challenges with one stamp pad.
The challenges were to make a card with only a black & white background (there could be other elements on it in color) and to make something with NO squares.
I started with the Cricut Wildcard scalloped card base. The flowers from the May KOTM are stamped on a doily center (I cut it out of the doily I used on THIS LAYOUT a while back). It's stamped once in StazOn and then again a few times in Stampin' Up! grey for a shadowy look.
Then I stamped the top flower and the dragonfly on some DCWV spring stack paper (luh-uh-uhve those colors!), cut them out, and adhered them with foam squares. Both are then covered with Diamond Glaze. There are also some turquoise rhinestones on the dragonfly's antennae.
I intended the card to signify that the dragonfly lights up the flower's otherwise gray existence.
The card is finished with some black doodles and some b&w polka dot ribbon.
