Dragonfly Dreams

Hello, welcome to my blog.  My share today is a thank you card I needed for my mother-in-law.  I got the Dragonfly Dreams bundle in my pre-order but have not had a chance to play with it until now.  It's a fabulous bundle which includes a 10 piece stamp set and a 5 piece thinlits die set.  I started with a Whisper White card base with a layer of Basic Black and another layer of Whisper White.  The top layer of Whisper White I stamped the dragonfly in VersaMark ink and then heat embossed it with a mixture of clear embossing powder and dazzling diamonds glitter.  I then used the thinlits dies and cut it out with the big shot.  Using the scattered dots image from the stamp set, I used Smoky Slate and Wisteria Wonder inks to stamp the background.  This got adhered to the black layer and then onto the card base.  I only used fast fuse on the cutout dragonfly's body and then placed it back into the negative space on the card.  This way the wings are free to fly.  The greeting is stamped in Elegant Eggplant using the Thankful Thoughts stamp set.  A few silver sequins finish off the front.

Here you can see some of the glimmer on the dragonfly.

The inside sentiment was stamped in Elegant Eggplant using the Thankful Thoughts stamp set.  The dragonfly is stamped in Wisteria Wonder and then brushed with clear Wink of Stella.  Thank you so much for stopping by, I really appreciate it.
