So today I pulled out the Dragonfly again - smaller one this time and combined it with Serene Scenery designer series paper to make a rather unique card - unique meaning I used something rather unusual for the dragonfly
Hmmm, can you tell what that is? This is leather.
How cool is that? I left all the little pop out pieces in - did not want these out - actually thought about painting this-but don't hold your breath waiting for that to happen - just sayin'.
My dad does a lot of leather work, so he has a lot of tanned leather over at his house. He is working on a project that he wants to get finished for my birthday and we are actually going to use honey bees and dragonflies on it (ofcourse, why would I want anything else?!!) We were struggling with what I would make the dragonflies out of - then dad brought up some of his leather and it worked perfectly in my big shot using the framelits - so I grabbed one of the dragonflies and made a card. How perfect would this be for a masculine card?!!! Kept it simple by just using "masculine" colors and the great designer series paper. I must try this with some other framelits. Man, I wish we had framelits that cut out a cowboy hat or boots . . . . .I need to go searching thru my framelits now for other ideas. So this cut really easily - ofcourse it is pretty thin.
When I showed this to Steve, he started to tell me what to do to make it better - held up my hand and said "stop right there" I'm happy with this card and I don't want to add anything else to it!!! So, ofcourse he would not tell me what else he wanted added. :) That's fine because I like it as simple as it is! Moving on - it is Wednesday - yippee - over the hump today. Have a great one.
