Black + White + Silver + a Color Challenge

pp270 1

My design team inspiration card this week for The Paper Players Color Challenge #PP270 is a relatively clean and simple  card.  I made three Christmas cards before I decided I wanted to share this one for my inspiration – a not-Christmas card.

This week’s challenge is to use Black + White + Silver or Gold + One Color, and the other design team members have some awesome inspiration cards (including lots of Christmas cards!)

For my card, I stamped the dragonfly onto watercolor paper in black and then dropped in some W&N Prussian blue watercolor paint (surprise surprise!) very loosely and shook it a bit to make it move and drip.  I also threw a few splatters on just for more freedom and artistic flair.  Once dried, I added some silver brads to complete the front.

One the inside, I stamped the dragonfly again in Night of Navy stamped off twice before stamping on the third hit to make it more subtle and muted.  I then stamped the sentiment on top of it.  Just for a bit more sparkle, which you really can’t see in the photo, I brushed this one with the Wink of Stella.

Hope my paper player friends will join us in the fun.

  1. Jodi, I love that you didn’t post a Christmas card… this butterfly is stunning and you really have perfected the drippy, splashy look. When I try it somehow it always looks so contrived.. yours just looks natural! Fabulous

    • thanks Jaydee – you know – I’m always fascinated with abstract art and before ever trying it thought it must be so easy. It’s not as easy as it looks – eh? 🙂
