Ships and Dragonflies

I had a few minutes to hang out in the crafty cave and created two clean and simple cards.  The first one I stamped (Hampton Art/Graphic45) on watercolor paper with VersaFine Onyx Black.  Next I used Spectrum Noir Aqua markers with water and a brush to apply color.  The word die cut was done with my Silhouette Cameo (#29892 Ahoy Matey by Jennifer Wambach) and black cardstock.  I felt it still needed a "little" something and went through by stash of charms.  I thought the mermaid was a nice finishing touch.  :)  I'm linking this one up at:






I'm still seeing dragonflies and wanted to do one more card with them.  I stenciled a gray cardstock panel with gray ink and stamped a sentiment at the bottom.  The dragonfly die cuts were done with my Silhouette Cameo (#125537) and white cardstock.  I used a punch by EK Success to do the pink cardstock flower (embossed with a Sizzix polka dot embossing folder).  For a little bling, I used small pink self-adhesive rhinestones.  Easy peasy card but I was pleased with how it turned out.  :)  This one is joining:





I have started watching Outlander on Netflix.  I've never read the book but thought I would give the series a "lookie."  :)  Of course I think  I talk with a Scottish "brogue" now  ;)  Hope your day has been going well and thanks for visiting.  Remember to stay crafty and wear a kilt.  :)
