Cathy Potosky is back today with another beautiful project using the new Wild Whimsy collection! Cathy will take it from here!
Yes yes yes to the dragonflies!! I love the wing stamps and all the cards in the pack too.
For this canvas I started with a shimmery wash of Ken Oliver's Mineral Spirits in Metallic Sky, then added some texture with Finnabair Paints in Magical Pond. Once that was dry I stamped the dragonfly wings randomly with Distress Oxide in Blue Print Sketch.
While I let my canvas dry I stamped the dragonfly wings in Archival Black and then painted them with Finnabair's Spark paints in Iris Potion and Butterfly Spells. I ran one set through my Xyron sticker maker to attach right to my canvas.
I attached one set of wings to an old key I had in my stash (check your stash everyone, keys go perfectly with these dragonfly wings).
I attached the dragonfly card from the pack using foam tape, tucked a set of wings under the one corner and added my key dragonfly to the top corner! I feel that everything should have dragonfly wings on it! :) And this new stamp in the Wild Whimsy collection is perfect for that.
Thank you so much to Cathy for sharing her stunning, whimsical canvas with us today! To see more of her wonderful work, visit her blog and Instagram.
