This week's challenge over on the Cute Card Thursday Blog has the theme 'Simplify' and our prize sponsor this week is Whimsy Stamps.

Now regular visitors to my blog will know how much I love the CAS (clean and simple) style of design and to me this week's theme 'screamed' CAS so that's what I have gone with for my DT card.

I've used a lovely 6x6 scalloped square base card, Distress Inks in Broken China, Peacock Feathers and Seedless Preserves and the fabulous blueprint dragonfly stamp from a set by Stampers Anonymous.

I stamped the dragonfly image onto a piece of white cardstock using Memento black ink, then used the DI's to colour the white background applying them with Inkyliscious brushes on a blending mat.  I then attached this image layer to a slightly larger piece of holographic metallic cardstock. 

The sentiment is from a set by Recollections which I stamped directly onto the basecard using Memento Bahama Blue ink.  I added three gems from my stash and painted a thin film of Stardust Stickles on the dragonfly wings to give them a subtle shimmer.

Here's a close up shot where you can see the shimmer more clearly


Do check out the fabulous creations from the rest of the DT over on the CCT blog, you're sure to be inspired.
