STAMPlorations inspiration #261

Because March has five Tuesdays, I'm back with one more Tuesday inspiration from the STAMPlorations inspiration team!

This month I've been creating cards all inspired by a card I saw last month that just took my breath away - the central design idea being "something framed on an inked background". Today ... well, if you saw last week's card you'll understand where today's originated.

I had chosen the dragonfly die as a potential candidate for the "something" but hadn't used it yet.

Distress inks - Cracked Pistachio, Evergreen Bough, Broken China, Blueprint Sketch

So there I was following the same design process, though trying to make it more masculine. I decided to go with the dragonfly but instead of die cutting and watercoloring, I'd dry emboss them on the distress inked BG. And pop on a clear sticker sentiment and call it good.

Subtle dimension, but it's cool. Hope you enjoyed this month's series.

I've used the dragonfly on this card too.
