Dragonfly Dreams taken to the next level.

as you know over the last few days I've been focusing on the Dragonfly Dreams stamp set and thinlet dies and I thought I would show you how to take it to the next level.

Background

Using the sponge brayer sponge tones of blues and greens gradually building up the layers to build depth of colour tone blend. The take a short bristle brush and some water and taking excess water off the brush flick the water in a fine spray across the card and blot with kitchen roll. Continue to do this until desired effect achieved. By blotting the ink is removed and white spray is left. Cut card equally in three pieces and mount on night of navy cardstock with small border. Mount this onto whisper white card base.

Dragonfly

Using a piece of cardstock and the ray from the Everyday hero stamp set stamp a circle of rays in various tones of yellow, blue and green, keep stamping till the desired effect achieved. The centre will be darker than the edge. Then die cut the dragonfly and stick to night of navy cardstock and fussy cut out. Now using clear embossing powder emboss three times to build a thick layer. The second time sprinkle some dazzling diamonds while embossing powder hot. Leave to dry completely and press underneath something heavy for a few hours to flatten dragonfly. Add some dimensionals and stick Dragonfly to card at an angle.
