Let Your Dreams Take Flight........

The card I will show you today is for the CASology Week # 50 Challenge, Cue Card: Free. 

I used the stamp set, Dreams Take Flight, from Gina K Designs.


 
 
Using the negative portion of card stock cut with the Spellbinders Label Eight Die, I took the Adirondack Paint Dabbers in, Purple Twilight, Pool, and Lettuce and sponged random splotches all over til I was happy with the results.  Stamping the dragonfly in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink on top of the paint.  I added a bit of sparkle to the dragonfly outline and swirls with a Sakura Clear pen.  White adhesive pearls were colored with Copic New Leaf, YG23.
 
I always buy this package of plain white adhesive pearls, when on sale at Michael's, or with a coupon.  The regular price is $6.99 and there are 480 assorted sizes.  You may think those small ones are too small, but they work really well on any design.  I find they are a good quality and you can change the color so easily, here using a Copic marker.  I am sure any marker would work, just let it dry enough before placing on your project.
 
 
 
With my work weeks as busy as they are this summer, I hope to get enough posts in place when I have the time.  Sooooo, I hope to see you back here soon.
 
Thanks so much for stopping by, enjoy your day and happy crafting!
