On Dragonfly Wings.....

Hello everyone: I'm here again today with a new card created using an old stamp set, I feel like I'm on a mission to really use my old stuff and it feels so good, it's like I'm seeing old friends after many years apart, I'm having a wonderful time.

This Dragonfly image is from a Stampin' Up! set called "Nature's Nest" that came out back in the 2009-2010 catalog, another beautiful and neglected set, sigh!!
I stamped the Dragonfly with Stazon black ink on watercolor paper and colored it with an old set of Shimmer Paints, the sprigs of flowers are from another Stampin' Up! set called "Nature Walk" which came out in the Occasions Mini in 2011.


This is how the INSIDE of my card looks like.

I punched the design with an old Friskars punch, the sentiment both in front and inside are from a Unity Stamp Company, also super old (2012), called "Your Wings Exist", I stamped the Dragonfly on top of the sentiment with Stazon gray ink.
I'm keeping my resolution of using my old stuff, I'm really having an awesome time doing it.

I'm playing along with the following challenges.

  11. Hi Maria! Happy 2019! And, this card is such a sweet way to start the new year! I just love that beautiful dragonfly, and I couldn't agree more about old stamps feeling like good friends that you haven't seen in a while. (I feel that way every time I ink up a Lawn Fawn winter sparrow or Mama Elephant reindeer game image.) Thanks so much for playing along with our first W2CB Challenge of 2019!
