Dreams Take Flight

By April 22, 2008General

Dreams_take_flight_cardI was playing around with Pond Life the other night and ended up designing some really fun patterned paper by pairing the dragonfly image with Polka Dot Basics.  I know, I have been using Polka Dot Basics a lot lately, but it is *so* easy to use and adds so much to a project.  I have made a mental note to design more background sets like this.  Just so versatile!

For my paper, I stamped the polka dots first with Groovy Guava ink onto Groovy Guava cardstock.  I then stamped the dragonflies with white ink on top of the polka dots.  I love how the white is just slightly transparent and you can see the polka dots through them.  The paper looked just a little bare, so I went back in and stamped the small hollow dot image intermittently over single polka dots.  The last touch was to add a little Star Dust stickles to the "encircled" dots.  I challenge you to make some of your own patterned paper today by layering images over a background pattern.  Link your creation in the comments section so I can take a peek!  Have a creative day!!!!
