Challenge #13 – Party Time

I took a leaf out of my stamp buddy Gayle’s book and in a way CASE’d her card for this same challenge. I really wanted to use this particular stamp set which is still very new to me and I also wanted to add dragonflies somehow. Firstly, I stamped the panda’s, coloured them with pencils, mostly watercolour type but added Sakura Glaze here and there as well. Then I fussy cut them out and set aside. Then I had the idea of using a dragonfly stamp in different colours over a white layer instead of using either a confetti EB or looking for something that would look like confetti. Initially I used a larger stamp but after adding a few realized it was going to be a bit too big. Fortunately the same set had a much smaller one so I continued with this one in different colours. Stamp set used is Vertical Greetings & things by GKD and the pandas, plus sentiment, come from an A.I. set I got in a sale. The way my mind works, I figured that the pandemonium being created by the bears made the dragonflies a better option than confetti. The card base has a glitter layer CS purchased in our local dollar store. The bears are having so much fun, one cannot help but think of party time. I’ve added a little glitter here and there using Sakura Gelly roll pens and quit while I was ahead.

It’s a fun card and was fun to make as well. Have a good day and thanks for stopping in to take a look.

  1. I wish you could join in on a party such as this too. With all the trauma of the past couple of years we could do with a party. Glad you like it.


  2. It was you who gave me the idea to incorporate the dragonflies and it worked better than I thought initially. I’ve just found a stamp set from Art Impressions that is a fun one with sheep and I couldn’t resist so it is now purchased.


  3. This is so delightful and fun! Fits our Party Time theme perfectly! Thanks for playing with us at Paper Dragonfly Challenges this month! Nan, DT
