Before I discuss the card I'm posting today, I want to share a photo of an orange dragonfly that I was able to get today (the photo, not the dragonfly, LOL). For the past couple of weeks, he's been buzzing through the back yard. I thought it was one of our hummingbirds because of his huge size and because he was flying with two hummers. Now, I realize they were chasing him! He's really big! He was a very good subject. Look at his wings. Aren't they beautiful? You can even see the shadow of his digestive track fro his thorax down through his abdomen. I'm sure I'll lose some of the beautiful colors and contrast since I'm uploading directly from Blogger. He is a very vibrant orange.
Now, for our little Tilda. She's much calmer than I because she does her Yoga each and every day. I wanted to create a card that was calming - reflecting what Yoga gives to its diligent practitioners. I chose aqua, purple, and a very pale sage green for the papers on the card. The cardstock is eggplant, aqua, and white. Tilda was colored with Copics. Even the ribbon has a texture that mimics the flow of the card.
This is the interior of the card. Again, I wanted to keep the theme as serene as I could. On the sides of the sentiment tag, I double stamped the floral spray. You cannot see it, but there is a very pale aqua image under the pale purple flower spray. The paper on the right side appears darker than it really is because of the angle and the way the light was unable to catch the paper properly.
I hope you enjoyed my not so little orange dragonfly and my Yoga Tilda. I so appreciate your visiting and hope that you will return! Thank you so much for visiting!
