Hello. Are you having a great week? Thought it was time to get back into using the vibrant colours I so love to use--and neglected.
The first step to making this background involved heat embossing with white embossing powder on glossy cardstock. Next, I brayered colour over top of the entire glossy cardstock. The dragonfly image was restamped on brown cardstock and cut out. Two pop dots are tucked underneath the dragonfly and two gems were glued onto the head to resemble large eyes.
Background blue is Taken With Teal. Dragonfly stamp: Stamper's Anonymous. Diamonds: unknown source. Stamp is acrylic and the brand name was not affixed to set in a permanent manner.
Enjoy your evening.
