It’s a new year and we have fresh new images to go with it! Hope you like them! Whether you’ve arrived from the wonderful Louise or started your hop here, you are very welcome. I hope you like what we’ve got for you today.
This month our theme is Wildlife – when I found that out I decided straightaway that I would use the Dragonfly Dreams set for my card – it was a must-have for me as soon as I saw the new Spring/Summer catalogue!
My card is actually a stepped up version of the last card I posted, designed for a recent card class. If you want to see the original version, click here to see the post. Today’s card is still pretty simple but it has added bling and texture – not words you often hear me saying!
My base is thick Whisper White and the dragonflies are stamped in Smoky Slate, with the solid body in Island Indigo, stamped off once as I didn’t want to completely cover up all the detail underneath. The wings have been given shimmer using the clear Wink of steals brush. The sentiment is also in Island Indigo. No change so far! Next I cut the dragonfly wing out of vellum using the Detailed Dragonfly Thinlit Dies and the Big Shot and added clear Wink of Stella for a gossamer effect. I stuck that to the central, complete dragonfly using glue dots at the top of the body and then finished it off with five tiny rhinestones (the ones that are connected) for added sparkle!
That’s it from me today – hope you like it. Click on the next button below to hop to Gina. There’s also a full list of all today’s blogs below.
