Paper Dragonfly Guest Designer

Hello Friends!

Welcome back to my blog ... I'm so happy you've come to visit!
I hope today finds you happy & healthy!

I'm excited to share with you today, a card I've created as the Guest Designer for the current challenge over on the Paper Dragonfly Challenge Blog.  

Grab our badge to help promote Paper Dragonfly!

I was offered the chance to be their guest designer by being the winner of their challenge #2. 
Thanks for this opportunity Paper Dragonfly!!

This challenge runs from May 6th through the 27th and the theme is MERMAIDS. They are thrilled to be sponsored by LeighSBDesigns Art Stamps ... be sure to check out her Etsy shop here.

I chose a panel of designer paper from the Craft Consortium 'Ink Drops - Ocean' 6x6 paper pack for my background.  I stamped an OLD (circa 2005) SU dragonfly from the 'on gossamer wings' set and colored in using Tombow markers.  I then embossed this panel using the Lisa Horton 'Water Droplets' 6x6 -  3D embossing folder. 

My mermaid comes from a Little B 'Mermaid' die set and the sentiment die is from Impression Obsession (#DIE723).  The coloring on the mermaid was also done with Tombow markers.

I hope you'll come check out this fun challenge and play along.

Thanks again for stopping by and as always . . .
