Make it Mine Monday: Dragonfly Dreams

Inside the Line.0117It’s another episode of Make it Mine Monday.  This week’s card features the fabulous Dragonfly Dreams Bundle.

Dragonflies might be right up there with flamingoes and whales as some of my favorite creatures.  I’m not sure what it is about them but I like them a lot.  How about you?  Do you like dragonflies?

If you’re new to my blog, Make it Mine Monday is a weekly feature where I show you how I took a card that I really liked and switched it up to make it my own design.  Sometimes there at big changes and sometimes not.

Check out the differences between this week’s cards.  The untitledtop card is mine and the bottom one is the one I CASEd.  (Thank you LeeAnn Greff!)  I kept the base of the card the same using the Sale-a-bration paper Inside the Lines as my background.  On my card I chose to use the intricate die cut for my dragonfly and added a strip of card stock on the front for my sentiment instead of the square.

To color my designer paper I used the new Sponge Brayers.  I rolled them on the ink pad and then lightly rolled them on the paper.  Definitely an easy way to add color to the paper.

To get the lighter colored wings on my dragonfly I die cut a second solid dragonfly and trimmed away the body.  Then I lightly rolled both of the colors on my wings and went over the whole thing before adhering them to the back of the intricate die cut wings.

As you can see, the cards are similar yet quite different.  It’s fun to take someone else’s beautiful card and put your own twist on it.  Have you tried this?  If so, share your “make-it-mine” card with me.  I’d love to see it!

Have a great day!  Take care and Happy Stamping!
