CU 29 Challenge

Oh what a challenge CASology has for us this week: Copper.  Definition: chemical element with symbol Cu (from Latin: cuprum) and atomic number 29. It is a soft, malleable, and ductile metal with very high thermal and electrical conductivity.  My definition: um, yea, what do I have that fits this theme?  This IS what I love about challenges, being challenged.

I really didn’t think I had anything copper. I thought copper as in police, nothing.  As usual when I sleep I remember all kinds of things and remembered I had received a kit and I thought it had copper Nuvo mousse.  Lucky me, it did.  I started by spreading the mousse all over a piece of cardstock.  I used my Hero Arts Fancy Dragonfly die and created the focal point for my card. I wanted some color behind the dragonfly so I used the frame of the die and cut the wings with vellum.  I glued the wings to the vellum and turned it over and with my markers colored the wings.  I used the leaves and flower my Altenew Freeform Greenery stamp set.  Initially I was going to color in the leaves, but in keeping the card clean and simple I decided to stamp with colored inks. I strategically placing my leaves and wildflower (notice, group of 3), I stamped with green and purple in in the lower 1/3 of my card.  My sentiment is from The Ellen Hutson, Avery Elle, G’Day Mate and it is stamped in black.  I applied foam dots to the back of the copper dragonfly wings and placed on my card.  I love how this turned out.  Dragonfly’s can be copper in color so, wow, I could work with this challenge :).  I hope you’ve enjoyed my endeavor with this card and might be inspired to create something yourself!
