Hi! Are you a fan of Dragonflies? I love them and was so excited when Dragonfly Dreams appeared in the Occasions Catalog. I made this card for a recent swap:
The background is called Scored Spotlight that I had seen in this video by my upline Tami White. I first stamped the leaves from Butterfly Basic in Pear Pizzazz repeatedly (stamp atleast 3 times before reinking). Then scored the grid (flip the image over on the scoreboard so it is facing down when you are scoring) and lastly sponge the grid. The Dragonfly is stamped with StaZon on Vellum cardstock, die cut, then covered with Clear Wink of Stella. He is then adhered to a copper foil dragonfly die cut. Here is a closer look at the Dragonfly:
Isn’t he just gorgeous? I was very happy with how this card turned out and got the best compliment ever when one of the receivers said she wanted to frame it. Made. My. Day.
The sentiment is stamped on Copper Foil with StaZOn ink.
A few Tips for today’s card:
- Use a piercing mat behind your vellum when stamping the dragonfly – it will help give a more even image. This is actually a great tip when stamping with ANY Photopolymer stamp.
- When stamping on the foil sheets, use a gentle touch – the stamp will slide if you press down too hard and smudge your ink.
