Kraft Happy Day

Hello! I have a CAS card today with my new set, Whimsical Wishes. There isn't much to show on this one , but I do have a few step by step photos.

I started by stamping the three silhouette images with Brilliance Moonlight White ink on a Pure Luxury Kraft card base.

I used my Bamboo Leaves and Pear Tart Memento Markers to color in the foliage of the silhouettes. These are pretty finely detailed images so I used the fine tip on the markers.

For the dragonfly, I used my Bahama Blue Memento Marker.

I filled in the wings with my B21 Copic marker.

I used Copics to add a drop shadow to the circles, starting with W3.

Then added W1. I used a blender pen to smooth out the edges of the shadows.

Stamped the sentiment with Memento Rich Cocoa.

I stamped the dragonfly with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with Copic Markers (B41, BG02 and BG05), then added some sparkle with my Stardust Glitter Pen.

I cut out the dragonfly and adhered it with Pop Dots and added bakers twine.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you have a happy day!

Very CAS but very elegant. I like the way you shadowed the circles with the Copics - I thought they were popped up with dimensionals. Great technique.

Who would have thought that kraft cardstock would make a card look so elegant. This is beautiful.
