Keepin' it Kool - Any Card Goes with Crafting with Dragonflies

This fortnight at Crafting with Dragonflies our theme is Anything Goes, cards only. I used a fun digi stamp from KaDoodle Bug Designs that I've had for quite some time but haven't used.

The background is a white cardstock embossed with a Sizzix folder that I first covered with a yellow ink. I like the effect. The ants are plastic buttons that I heat-embossed with a shiny black powder; I added "thread" with a gold pen. I made the "lemon" with a Sizzix die, adding detail with the gold pen & a yellow Sharpie and cutting out a little wedge. I used a Versamark pen to fill the letters with neon-yellow embossing powder. The shaker portion is covered with vellum, and is filled with yellow-orange mircobeads.

  1. Makes me thirsty just looking at it - why is it ants always arrive when there is lemonade? Great card. Lots going on here.

  2. Oooohhhhh ants!!! Those pesky insects have 'tried' to invade me this week. Unsuccessfully I may add as I'm known as the Ant Exterminator in the family. They get everywhere don't they.....the tiny tiny ones grrrrr. I diverse sorry CG. Your card is yummy and looks very refreshing. I love the bright summery yellow. Hugs Wynn xx
