Dragonflies

Today I have a very special make for you. Its been formulating in my head since the middle of last month. I somehow knew I had to use pink and pale blue for the dragonfly make but what format it would take I wasn't sure. So last Thursday I settled down with a handful of card, some neutrals paper, the neutrals ink with pink and blue, the dragonfly stamps and dies and my Big Shot. This is what I produced...... along with a lots of bits all over the carpet!


I wasn't sure about the brown wood frame but the white ones looked even worse and now its been on the side a couple of days I think it adds to the vintage look.



This is the large die cut dragon fly. There isn't a stamp to match this so I stuck the die cut onto a piece of white and daubed with the pink pirouette and soft sky. The background cycle I hand cut after drawing around a saucer as I didn't have a die that big. This has been stamped with the Timeless Textures in pink pirouette, soft sky and crumb cake.




The printed paper is from my stash of retired stock as is the music but you could use pages from an old book or similar. All the little blocks have been daubed with crumb cake on both layer one and the top layer. I always use the grid paper on my table and when I daub I start on the grid paper and pull the ink onto the card, this gives a darker edge, this means that all the layers don't blend into one shade .









I have used all the image stamps and all the dies to create this frame. The sentiments are more useful for cards.
