Feeling Pretty

      I'm happy to announce that I was selected as a GDT for the Paper Dragonfly challenge and I'm using an image from All Dressed Up which I won in a previous challenge at Paper Dragonfly.  The image is called "Pretty in Plaits."

     I colored with ProMarkers and cut the image with a rectangle die from QuicKutz.  I used a Fiskars punch on 3 of the corners and a Uchida punch on the last one.  The dragonfly was hand drawn and is NOT part of the original image.  The background piece was done with water color paints and the ombre is rather subtle but can still be seen.  The sentiment was printed, then cut with an Avery Elle die.  I tied a double loop bow using my bow maker.  The wide ribbon behind the image was a scrap and I used it up on this project.  Everything on this card came from my stash - nothing new purchased.  :-D

I reversed the sketch from Sketch Saturday.
Creative Knockouts  (bow and ribbon)

     It would be great to see you playing in the challenge this month.  I look forward to seeing your projects.  Happy Crafting.  NanaConnie
