Best Of Times

Katzelkraft have a new challenge this month which is SUMMER COLOURS. We would love to see you join in the challenge; simply link your projects HERE.
I love these colours and think they are a perfect way to give a summery feel to any card. I added Distress Inks to the background and then crumpled some aluminium foil, inked the foil with ink and then stamped onto the background to give added interest; I love the marks this leaves in the background.
I die cut a circle from scrap paper and used the aperture as a mask. I left the mask in place and then stamped the COLLAGE DRAGONFLY into the aperture using Potting Soil Archival Ink. I flicked the background of the card with water to add blotches and also added dimension to the dragonfly wings.
I added torn book pages to the bottom of the card along with the hashtag sentiment. I also included a Bitty Blossom for added interest, stamping the card with the Dragonfly Collage stamp prior to rolling the flower.
Thanks so much for stopping by. Tracy x x
