Hi there! Wow it’s another scorching hot day here in the UK! So perfect for more gorgeous summer inspiration… Jane Tyrrell has a beautiful card to share with you featuring our new dragonfly stamp…
Happy summer! Yes we have enjoyed our longest day too and the long summers days loom ahead. I live very near the River Wandle as it winds its way back up to London and I delight in my walks along it.
As I walked along yesterday I saw a flash of colour in the undergrowth
I only had my phone with me (very unusal for me!) but I managed to snap a very summery visitor, a shimmery dragonfly.
This leads in perfectly to my latest design team project for Visible Image and I am sharing another sample I made using the brand new stamp release which is released tomorrow!
I made a summery card using the lovely dragonfly from the Summer Wings
I decided to get out my alcohol inks and made a summery background
I cut it down for a 7X5″ card
I stamped all the images onto acetate which I had also added alcohol ink to (I will use the butterflies for another project).
I also gold embossed some of them (sorry no photos!) I decided to use just the wings of the gold embossed acetate dragonfly and gold embossed another on some inky mop up card. I used the 2 together to make a real statement dragonfly.
This was just right for my alcohol ink background.
I also decided to use one of the fab sentiments from the new Equality, Hope and Love stamp set
Here is my finished card.
with some close ups..
and one last shot:
I have LOTS more samples to share over the coming weeks and do keep an eye out on social media where mine and my teamies samples are being shared.
Thanks so much for stopping by.
Bye for now,
What a stunning background for our dragonfly stamp Jane! The colours are fabulous together and the gold embossing and acetate layer look really beautiful. Thank you! And thank you for sharing your photos of the wonderful dragonfly you spotted too ♡
