Craft-Room Collage

My last scheduled post and then I'll be back.

Another fortnight has gone by and it's time for another Craft-Room Challenge. The latest theme is Collage and it has been chosen by Esther.

This is the card that I've made.

The sponsor for the challenge is IndigoBlu.

I coloured the edge of a white card blank with vintage photo Distress ink then I adhered a piece of craft card that I'd painted with green acrylic paint. I then adhered some paper that I'd stamped dragonflies on, some handmade paper and some gold mesh. I embossed some card with tiny dragonflies then painted it with some acrylic paint. I then sanded it to take the paint of the dragonflies, then I sponged some peeled paint Distress ink over it and took the excess of with a damp cloth. The sentiment was stamped [The Artistic Stamper] onto some card and I attached it with staples. The large dragonfly was stamped and embossed and black gems added. I added a few black gems to a couple of corners and added some dragonfly charms. I don't know what stamp company made the dragonfly stamps.

We had some wonderful entries in the Pins/and or charms challenge, I don't envy Nikki having to choose her top three. Why not visit the Craft-Room to have a look at the wonderful samples that the rest of the DT team have made.
