Nikki has suggested we  Just Add Wings to our papercraft project, for this week's Just Add Ink challenge.

Here's the colour combination I used on today's share:

My winged creature of choice is the gorgeous dragonfly from Stampin' Up!'s Awesomely Artistic stamp set.   I started off with a square of Watercolor Paper, onto which I stamped several dragonflies.  The dragonfly stamp was inked up in Tempting Turquoise and Bermuda Bay, and then Wisteria Wonder and Elegant Eggplant.   After stamping the dragonflies, I spritzed the paper with water, and let the ink run.  When the piece was dry, I silver-embossed a few butterflies right over the top of the watercolour images.

I hope you can see the gorgeous background paper I used on my card.  It's a piece of Fancy Frost Specialty Designer Series Paper, which is white, with dry-embossed leafy patterns.  Using my sponge brayer, I added Tempting Turquoise, Bermuda Bay, Wisteria Wonder and Elegant Eggplant inks  to the surface.  The pattern in the paper is subtle, but rather beautiful.

I have listed below all the Stampin' Up! products I used to make this card.  If you would like to buy them for yourself, you can visit my online store by simply clicking on one of the thumbnail images.

Make sure you check out the rest of the Design Team samples over at Just Add Ink.  We hope you are inspired to play along with us this week!
