Dragonfly Dreams Inside The Lines Sponged Background Cards

The Inside the Lines Sale-a-Bration Designer Series Paper is so much fun to customize!  You can color it with markers or watercolor pencils, spritz it with ink, or just leave it an elegant black & white. For today's projects, I tried sponging on Classic Inks for a beautiful blended background that coordinates with the Dragonfly Dreams image.

Background Basics—I started by cutting a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of the leaf foliage pattern of the Inside The Lines DSP.  Next, I used Sponge Daubers to apply heavy layers of color in Mint Macaron, Bermuda Bay and Night of Navy inks.  It's adhered to a Basic Black card base with SNAIL.

I added a 1-3/4" x 5-1/4" strip of Bermuda Bay card stock down the center as a foundation for the focal point.

Shimmer Dragonfly—I stamped the Dragonfly Dreams image in Memento Black Ink onto Whisper White card stock, then die cut it with the Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits.  I colored the wings in with Mint Macaron and Bermuda Bay markers, then added a little Wink of Stella Clear for some iridescent shimmer. 

The dragonfly is popped up with Dimensionals over a Whisper White Stitched Shapes Framelits square die-cut.  It's matted onto a 3" x 3" piece of Basic Black and also popped up.

Sweet Sentiment—I finished by stamping a Dragonfly Dreams sentiment in Memento Black ink onto a 3-1/2" x 3/4" strip of Whisper White.  The ends were fishtailed with Paper Snips, then the sentiment was popped up with Dimensionals.  I also added three Rhinestone Jewels at the bottom for some sparkle.

Two Cool—My second version has a blend of Calypso Coral, Sweet Sugarplum and Wisteria Wonder.   I added a strip of Rich Razzleberry card stock down the center this time.
