OLW In Blue and Brown!

Ooooh it's been too long in between posts again... but here I am with another one finally!

I am away at the moment with my kids, staying with my parents while my hubby does some work in our house. I knew I would have a chance to do some blogging while here, so before I left, I uploaded some pictures (yes, that means I'll have more than just one post in the next couple of weeks!). I also brought a stack of stamping supplies so I can get creating, but I won't be able to post anything I make here until I get home as I don't have the camera and set-up to get them uploaded.

So today I have my entry for this weeks One-Layer Wednesday challenge.

I masked off the edges of the card and sponged the centre with Baja Breeze and Not Quite Navy. I wanted to keep the colours simple so I have only used Early Espresso to stamp the images and fill in the body and wings of the dragonfly. I positioned the dragonfly so that it would mirror the blade of grass on the other side, but I'm not sure if it works as I imagined it would. It's one of those "good idea at the time" things. At least the card meets the challenge requirements - one layer of card and inspired by nature!


  1. Welcome back Shelley! I've missed you! You're back with the vengeance, this is beautiful!

  2. SUCH a pretty card! How clever of you to stamp the images as you did. I would have wrecked it by making the sponged part taller, to accommodate the images, and I probably would have put the dragonfly with his nose on a reed, or something.


  3. Beautiful card! Love those stamps and the positioning is perfect!

  4. A really pretty card! So serene! Love that sentiment!

  5. This card is beautiful Shelley. Great to see you back blogging and I hope you and the kidlets are enjoying some "you" time over the holidays.

  6. Beautiful card, looking forward to seeing some more from you!!!

  7. Beautiful card, wonderful sentiment.
