Topic: Scrap Recovery
When I made the card a few days back with all the diecuts on it I used a new die set to cut out two words. In doing that I ended up with the letters theselves that were left over.
I went through other scraps left over from previous sessions and came up with a piece of embossed white cardstock that I had sponged color onto.
The final piece I scrounged was a stamped image on watercolor paper. The stamping had not turned out well so I had set it aside. When I pulled it out I used a fine black marker to redraw all of the lines and then I painted it using Distress Ink as watercolors.
I pulled out a piece of green cardstock for the base card, echoing the color from around the globe. I placed a lace-printed paper at the top and added a sketched line around it.
I then tore and inked the edges of the stamped image and adhered it in the center.
The diecut words went on the bottom along with a dragonfly punched from some wrinkle-free distress background. I used a fine black marker to add some hashing to the green base card and the dragonfly wings, then added circles to the dragonfly body.
There was a bit of an issue with one leg of the 'W' when I peeled off the tape I used in aligning the letters. I used a line of green rhinestones to cover it and then added one to the dragonfly head and dotted the 'I' with another.
