Sunday Stamps- 119

What is your favorite day of the week?  Me, I have two and they are Saturday and Sunday.  I know it was probably hard for you to guess that! ;)  Both have special appeal because of the weekend and not being at work.  Sunday get's a little extra pizzazz though, because it it is Sunday Stamps challenge day!  So let's get right to that pizzazz shall we... Here is this week's challenge:

To me, this picture says fall, but there are so many choices with this color pallette.  I went for something different and entirely outside my comfort zone. 

I used watercolor paper t create the background.  I used a combo of spritzers and ink refill bottles.  I didn't have the craft color, so I went with something that turned out a little more yellow.  I stamped and embossed the image from Crafters Companion on velum.  I added color to a few areas and used gold SmoochGlitz to color the rest of the wings.  The sentiment is from Technique Tuesday.  I added one little red pearl as an accent (Freckled Fawn).  I used dimensionals to mount on my Chocolate Chip paper and then brushed my Tsukienko Delacata Gold around the edges.  

Do I like it?  I haven't decided...  It is still out of my comfort zone and the dark colors aren't my usual, so I'll mull on it for a while.  Meanwhile, the other ladies created a fun variety of things so different from my own you have to go see them, just head on over to Sunday Stamps.  Then I hope you get inspired enough to join us. :)

Thanks for visiting!

Wow Katie,

Your dragonfly looks like it could totally take wing off the page. I love the free feel to this - and I think it's the most artistic card I've seen for a while. Your card could could be a beautiful journal page illustration. Kudos to you and HAPPY birthday! Wooot woot!
