CTS#92 and NBUS#2


Hi everyone!



Lovely spring Saturday we're having here in George!!


I'm posting another card I've made using the current sketch over at the CAS(E) this Sketch Blog

This is the sketch:


 
 
 
I have used the same idea as in my previous CTS#92 card.
 
This is my card:
 


 
 

 

The dragonfly punch I've had for ages but never used it for a card before.
The black line is a piece of twine.
Afrikaans sentiment saying: 'Thank you very much'.
Rounded it off with black plastic dots and rhinestones.


As this is the first time I'm using my dragonfly punch, I am also entering this for Darnell's NBUS Challenge nr2.  If you don't know who Darnell is and what NBUS is all about, visit Darnell's fun blog, Djkardkreations.com.  You will surely enjoy what you find there!!!



 
 
 
 
That's what I've got to share today, thanks for looking and hope to see you again soon!!!
 
Keep well!!
Kind regards
Petra

Another lovely card Petra - I just love this design; you've really hit the nail on the head with this and I love your little red dragonflies.

Another stunner, Petra ... the monochrome palette is a perfect background for the shimmery, vibrant dragonflies ... love all the controlled splatter! Anita :)

Fantastic card Petra. Love your take on the sketch... I've been looking at it for days now, but I needed to see your card to get inspired! The dragonflies are so sweet.

Mal oor jou naaldekokers Petra!
Jy het so 'n pragtige agtergrond geskep om hulle op hulle beste te laat lyk!

Another gorgeously designed card with the splash of the colored dragonflies against that dark background. Love the 'splat' look of that corner inking and then the sparkle on the dragonflies made it come alive. You should frame this one!!! TFS & hugs

Love the pop of color from the dragonflies over the cool distressed images!

Leigh Penner said...

Oh, another super cool take on the sketch! I love it!

Donna Ellis said...

Love these sweet little dragonflies, Petra, and that they have taken the place of the other grouping in the sketch - the sketch is fabulous! Sweet little pearls. I admire your artsy flair with abstracts (like the black and white details). I really enjoy looking at them, but do not possess the talent and imagination to create like you do. It makes me appreciate your artwork all the more. hugs, de
