I was determined to CASE Cathy's card so the first chance I got to spend time in my craft room I dug out the stamp set and enjoyed playing. I created the background by applying Broken China and Peeled Paint Distress Inks to a panel of white CS using ink duster brushes. I then stamped the water drops image twice using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I added white highlights to the drops with Picket Fence Distress Paint applied with a small paintbrush. I die cut the dragonfly twice - once from SU! Basic Black CS and again using vellum CS, layered the two shapes together, glued the dragonfly in place and added some pale green gems to the body. I stamped and die cut the sentiment label, popped it up and added a couple more pale green gems.
Here's a closer look.
Some simple stamping inside and on the envelope flap completed my card. I'm very happy I finally inked up a stamp from the beautiful Inkylicious 'Water Rain Drops' set!
