A Dragonfly Challenge

January 16, 2017

Today I decided to play along with a sketch challenge at Fab Friday.  It gave me a chance to use the Dragonfly Dreams stamp set.  I also used the colour challenge at Global Design Project to kick start my colour palette.

I embossed Silver Foil card using the Hexagon Embossing Folder and attached it to scored and folded Delightful Dijon card.  I attached squares of Delightful Dijon and Cucumber Crush card to the card front.  I stamped the “dotted” image from the Dragonfly Dreams stamp set across the bottom of a square of Very Vanilla card using Cucumber Crush ink.  dragonfly-2I stamped the greeting from the same stamp set onto the top left hand corner using Delightful Dijon ink before attaching to the card front.  You will notice that each of the pieces of card on the front are layered at angles to each other, so when I stamped the greeting, I stamped it so that it lined up with the straight edge on the card base.   I stamped the dragonfly wings from the Dragonfly Dreams stamp set onto Very Vanilla card using Delightful Dijon ink.  I added the body using the same ink.  I cut this image out using the outline from the Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits Dies.  I also cut a detailed image from Silver Foil card using the same Thinlit Dies. dragonfly-3I added a little dimension to the wings of each of the dragonfiles before attaching the Silver image over the Delightful Dijon image using a Glue Dot.  The dragonfly is attached to the  stamped Very Vanilla card using glue dots.

to decorate the inside of the card, I stamped the dotted image across the bottom of Very Vanilla card using Cucumber Crush ink.

This is the first time I have used this stamp set to create a card and I think that I am going to love this stamp set and matching dies very much.  I know you have heard me say this about every stamp set I have used from the new Occasions Catalogue but it’s true, each one I use just makes me realise how special this catalogue is.

I’d love to hear what you think.
