Double D - Don't BUG Me!

Hello Friends!
It's time for a new challenge over on the Double D Challenge Blog!
Team Diane is hosting today and the theme is:

Don't Bug Me!

Here's what I've created using a VERY OLD  Stampin' Up stamp set (circa 2006).
And, here's the fabulous mood board Diane has created for your inspiration:

I stamped my image onto Vellum and white card stock.
Using various blue & green Spectrum Noir alcohol markers to color in the backside of the dragonfly, I then used a spray adhesive to adhere it to the card stock image.  The white card stock image was previously die cut using the Tutti Designs Scalloped Stitched Square die set.

To create my accent panel behind the dragonfly panel, I used Tim Holtz Distress Oxide inks to create a panel I would use to die cut.  I used 'cracked pistachio' and 'peacock feathers' onto watercolor paper.

After my panel was dry, I die cut it with this fun Dee's Distinctively 'Lattice 1' die.

A few accent dots of White Nuvo Crystal Drops and my card is complete.

Love this dragonfly card! The colors are beautiful. I love that lattice background die.

I used to have this set and I wish I still did. I purge and then my style or whatever changes, but can't keep everything. New stuff is always waiting to pop into my shopping cart. Anyway... see, you made it so beautiful that I went off on a tangent. Love the background and colors with this.

It's so beautiful Darlene! I have always loved this old Stampin Up set and never did get a chance to buy it! What a fabulous design!
Thank you so much for joining in at my Feature a Creature challenge this month at Ellibelle's Crafty Wednesday!

The background die is a perfect background for the beautifully stamped dragonfly.

Beautiful colors! I love when the image is larger than the focal area, or so it seems! This is beautiful!

Barbara said...

Wow 2006? They never get out of date. This is over the top amazing and I have vowed to look through my older stamp sets too.

Judy Woodland said...

Oh my gosh, do I ever love this!!! Wish that stamp was still available, I might have to look for it on eBay. I love that die cut behind the image too, have had my eye on it for some time over at DRU. You are SUCH an enabler!!! Good thing I love ya or I'd be mad!

Pretty Paper Junkie said...

My favorite color! That is such a pretty stamp and with that die behind it is really beautiful. Love the Nuvo drops too! Nicely done Darlene.

Evelyn S. said...
