Dragonfly Dreams

I have used this Stampers Anonymous Dragonfly Collage stamp (P1622) many times and it still remains one of my favourites. Obviously everyone else feels the same as Pinterest is flooded with samples.

I have embossed the image in gold, then used Lindy’s Stamp Gang Starburst ‘Jack in the Pulpit Teal’  in combination with Dylusions spray ‘Squeezed Orange’ for the background colour. We will be making a similar card to this in my upcoming “Pearls, Paints and other Potions” class.

This dragonfly from Stamp-it’s set065 is in the same vein as the above design.

For this card, I sponged Distress inks over white card to colour, then lay a stencil over and spritzed water through to create the circular images. I randomly dripped water droplets over for a more irregular effect. I also used a wet paintbrush on the right wings of dragonfly to bleach the colour from them. Have a clean tissue or paper towel handy to dry as you go. Glossy Accents and Crystal Glitter have been used on wings of both cards.
