Hello everyone, lovely to have you drop by here! This card was created for the Nature's Glories challenge over at the Countryview Crafts Challenge blog.
I started with the dragonfly itself and on a piece of smooth stamping paper, created a base of colour with glimmer mists (Cosmic Shimmer Vintage Mist in Egyptian Blue and Lindy's Stampgang Moonshadow mist). I then added some texture with the help of Wow embossing powder in Verdigris and some Frantage aged green.
Next I stamped the dragonfly on top of that and fussy cut it. I then stamped it again on some packaging, this time in Black Stazon, cut out just the wing part and then coloured with 3 colours of Alcohol Inks: Stream, Aqua and Cloudy Blue. BIG MISTAKE, and I should have remembered this!!! As Stazon is alcohol based, the inks wiped out the stamping, but at least the colour remain and as it was see through anyway and I had the wings themselves cut out, I decided to just go with it. I heated them with my heat tool and then shaped them a bit and finally adhered them to the stamped one. This is what it looked like now:
Well, hope you like my card, there is still some time to play along in our challenge, all the details can be found HERE.
Thank you for visiting like always, have a creative day and look after yourself!
