Crafty Cardmakers # 169 Summer

Welcome to all my new followers, hope you enjoy the journey.
Hi! back again to tell you that it's time for another challenge over
at Crafty Cardmakers.

Bec is hosting our Summer Challenge.You can interpret this how you like, a coastal scene, summer activities, vacations etc. as long as it relates to Summer.

As usual You can enter anything you fancy, it doesn't have to just be cards, as long as it meets the challenge, and doesn't exceed the 15 total challenges entered rule.

And what a summer we are having here in the UK!
The garden is looking great encouraging lots of insects, bees, butterflies and dragonflies which are all lovely subjects for art work but the dragonflies won this time round.

As my regular visitors will know I am trying to use up some 'Leftovers' including half used Masterboards and found this one I made for an earlier project some time ago.

 I stamped onto a blank card to give a watery effect and then used two torn pieces of the Masterboard to border the sides of the card.

And so to the completion of the card.
I stamped the same dragonfly several times on white card and then trimmed them so that only parts of the dragonfly were still visible. I enhanced the wings with Stickles glitter glue and also added some to the water droplets.
So here you have it......

I hope you will pop over to see what the rest of the DT have been up to and maybe join in the challenge.
I look forward to seeing what you come up with too.
 Happy crafting.
