Dragonfly Dreams

Hi there and welcome back!  I have another card to share tonight, this time for the sketch challenge at Fab Friday. 

I decided to use the lovely Dragonfly Dreams stamp and die set from Stampin' Up.  Starting by ink blending Distress inks (listed below) on a small rectangle of Bristol paper, adding water drops using a mister of Perfect Pearls and then drying it with a heat tool.  Since I was planning on adding a dragonfly die cut out of Copper Foil paper, I thought it would look really pretty atop shades of green and blue. 

In lieu of adding a circle or doily under the inked panel, I used one of the Gorgeous Grunge stamps to create a splatter image, stamping in Versamark and heat setting with Copper embossing powder.  The sentiment was also heat set with the same embossing powder after stamping it on a strip of black card stock.  After adhering the dragonfly and sentiment to the inked panel, it was popped up on foam tape and added to the panel, and finally the sequins were glued into place.

That's it!  Thanks for visiting today, it's always appreciated!  I've added a link to the challenge above, so be sure to take a look and enjoy all the wonderful inspiration.

Oh, this is gorgeous! I love the color effects you've achieved - and your other details are perfect - love those sequins, and the embossed detail instead of a doily - so pretty! Thanks so much for playing at Fab Friday!
