Dragonfly Dreams Sneak Peek

Today I have another sneak peek for you - I've used three new product lines from the 2017 Occasions catalogue

I've used the stunning Detailed Dragonfly thinlets to create the focal point of my card, isn't it just gorgeous; I sponged Watermelon Wonder onto shimmery white cardstock, concentrating more colour where I would be cutting the body of the dragonfly. The dots in the background are from the coordinating Dragonfly Dreams stamp set. The background is lightly water coloured with "stamped off" dots so they weren't too intense.

I used a dauber and applied ink from the centre towards the edge of the"thanks" sentiment from Suite Sentiments to give it a faded, soft effect at the edges.

I've decided to enter this card in two challeges - Stamp Ink Paper's 'Anything But Christmas" 

and Just Add Ink's "Just Add...N" after all I used 3 New items :)
