May's elements

It's the first Friday of the month so that means an "elemental" challenge over at Daring Cardmakers. Shabneez has chosen the inpsiration picture for May - as ever, just chose at least three elements to kickstart your project.

I chose dragonfly wings, irridescent blue/green and splashy metallic gold (from the hands bottom left).

All my stamps are older than a year so I'm playing along at Retro Rubber as well where it's currently "anything goes"!

Stamps:
Poppies (Crafty Secrets, no longer with us. Set is dated 2010)
Splat That and sentiment from Big Day Today (both Waltzingmouse Stamps, no longer with us. Sets dated 2013)

Paper:
Bristol board

Ink:
Brilliance by Tsukineko (Graphite Black, Pearlescent Chocolate)

Other:
Copic markers
Copic Spic glitter pen (turquoise)
Flitter Glu by Indigo Blu
Mega Flake by Indigo Blu (Chariot of Fire)
Corner Chomper
Scor It

Here's the picture if you didn't come via DCM and would like to play along:


Thanks for stopping by!

Magical! I love how your card is so rich and iridescent. Best of all, I love the clean and crisp look of the layout. The sentiment is just gorgeous in both idea and font. Thank you for joining us at Retro Rubber Challenge.

This is STUNNING!! CAS perfection...I wish I had that dragonfly stamp, it's divine and the way you colored it, along with the gold "splats"...well, it's just a work of art! So happy you shared it with us at Retro Rubber this week!

This card is wonderful. I love those gold splashes and the vibrant turquoise wings. The little finishing touches of the embossed line and rounded corner also add something special xx

Ah...I will always miss the beautiful fonts of Waltzing Mouse. You just dont see those around.
You always pair them so well with the image.

I like that partial dry emboss line. cool touch.

You gold flaked! You go girl!
