Dragonfly Dreams fusions.

I just love the Dragonfly Dreams stamp set and coordinating die as dragonflies are timeless and so on trend. Today I want to show you how to create a fun background using the bokeh effect (bokeh is the circle reflections you get on a camera lens) but with a twist.  I never throw away waste so the hexagonal waste from the Build It framelits was used for a mask. I used all the blues and green inkpads tomsponge using our sponge daubers and build up the background. The last colour to use is white which gives  that translucent look.

The dragonfly was die cut using the solidndie for the background and the detailed in black on top. See yesterdays video for details of these dies. Mounted on black with the sentiment embossed in black it makes a stunning card and if I dare say a good masculine card.
