A Round of DRAGONFLIES for CASology

Happy Tuesday! Even if you are afraid of insects of the flying type, you have to love this one that is inspiring our CASology challenge the next 2 weeks:

Let's just say this card was a mixture of I have stamps I haven't used yet (shocking right lol) and I have this wreath builder template that I have tried to use, but failed miserably all 3 times. I was determined to conquer both of those issues with this challenge :)

There's a small stamp set from Hero Arts w/Lia Griffith called "Love Bugs" and there are all kinds of cute little bugs and a sentiment (not the one I actually used on my card though). Armed with the tiny dragonfly and my 3.75" x 3.75" Gina K wreath builder template, I took to making the wheel of dragonflies. I used Zig Clean Color brush pens to color them in, with a pop of white colored pencil close to the body. A little gold embossing around the edge and for the sentiment (also from Hero Arts, "You're So Lovely". Finally...success!

LOL at a Yeti for CASology

How did we make it to September already?!! Well, I guess I can give into the holiday card designs now :) For the next 2 weeks, we want to see whatever you like to laugh at...or maybe something that is laughing on your card. Be creative; we can't wait to see your work!

I love this new stamp set I grabbed in the last few weeks, right before (sadly) Craftin Desert Divas went out of business. This snowboarding yeti looks like he is having a ball. I cut a strip of a stitched hill, colored the this dude with B0000, B00, B02, C1, C3, C7 Copic markers (colors I drew upon from the challenge below), and mounted him on top with a bit of Tumbled Glass Distress Inks swirled behind him. Head over to my Instagram page to see close ups...he's so stinking cute!

If you like to giggle, please check out the other DT members' designs!
