Crazy Crafter's August Blog Hop - CASING Dawn Olchefske

Welcome to another 'Fun' Blog Hop with the Crazy Crafter's for the month of August.


If you are following the blog - you've just come from Juana Ambida - an amazing Crazy Crafter who makes the most beautiful cards (it's a hard act to follow)!

This time we are CASEing (Copy and Selectively Edit) a card from Dawn Olchefske. Here is a picture of Dawn and a link to her blog if you wish to check out more amazing creations that she has made.




The card that I have decided to CASE for this Blog Hop is a gorgeous card using another of my favourite stamp sets - "Awesomely Artistic"! As soon as I saw Dawn's card, I knew this was the one I wanted to CASE. I love how this card was created with the soft sponged background and the gorgeous dragon fly flying across the card. I loved the bling in this card too, it's such a sweet card I couldn't wait to recreate it with a few variations!

Here is the card that Dawn created:


and here is my card:




I used the NEW foam strip to stick the sentiment down. It added extra height and helped make it pop off the card!

I also fussy cut the dragon fly and mounted it onto stampin dimensionals so it also sat slightly raised from the rest of the card.
This is a close up of the background so you can see how the background was sponged on before stamping the flowers and ferns. I used Wisteria Wonder and Sweet Sugar Plum to sponge the background. I only used Flirty Flamingo for the three ferns that I stamped to add an additional colour to the composition.
