CAS-ual Friday meets Blogger's Challenge



Today Stampotique originals is sponsoring the CAS-ual Fridays challenge.  We are always Clean And Simple and our theme is Mostly Monochromatic, 3 + 1.  Use at least 3 shades of the color of your choice monochromatically and then add Chocolate Brown. The current  Blogger's Challenge  is Travel so I thought it would be perfect to really challenge myself by combining them.

You can travel via a dragonfly right?  I mean they travel so I think it meets the theme this week :-)


I went for a neutral monochromatic color this week using kraft, orange and browns.  I did add just a hint of color to this with my jewel stickers and a few brushes of three different oranges in the wings of the dragonfly.  This Dragonfly and sentiments are all part of the September new release with Stampotique.

Hope you will join us at CAS-ual Friday today for your chance to win a grab bag of stamps from Stampotique and if you are really feeling challenged, also join us at Blogger's Challenge for our travel theme this week.
