Time Flies - FMS 192

During the week when I was looking out some floristry bits a pieces I kept having "I wondered where that went" moments as I found things that I had thought long lost. The same thing happened today as I delved into a couple of boxes of crafty stuff and came across some nice pearlised linen effect cardstock I knew I had but just couldn't remember where I'd put it. Now it has been re-discovered I have put it in my A4 drawer unit with my other pearlised stock for future use.

I had originally been going to use a star as my starting point but as the instructions are "any shape" I decided to use a rather nice Debbie Moore dragonfly stamp that had been a freebie with a craft magazine a couple of weeks or so ago.As I'd rediscovered it, I decided to use some of the nice pearlised linen effect cardstock for this card. However, as I don't have a lot of it I decided to be a frugal crafter and just use a piece as a panel on a supersmooth base.

The card was top folded and some gold washi tape with small white polka dots was run down the sides of the card to create the borders.

I stamped the dragonflies and the "Time Flies" sentiment using Versasmark clear embossing ink so I could add some gold embossing powder. I also inked and embossed a small strip of card to create a background for the sentiment. I coloured the dragonfly and small flowers in the main circular design element with Promarkers to add a little colour

  1. This is so pretty! I love the dragonfly and the "pearlised linen' paper. It's perfect for this card. Thanks for sharing with us at Freshly Made Sketches!
