Delicate Dragonfly

Beautiful card by Elaine featuring dragonflies from our LIVE IN THE MOMENT stamp set, with our INK SPLATS stamps and FIBRES stencil in fabulous cooling colour tones.

[tutorial] Elaine created a water colour background using ‘broken china’ Distress Oxide ink and ‘speckled egg’ Distress ink. Next Elaine randomly stamped the ink splats, then applied crackle texture paste through the stencil. The focal dragonfly was stamped and heat embossed onto vellum, along with the coffee ring stamp, and both cut out. The ‘hope’ sentiment was stamped in co-ordinating ink, and the panel was edged in blue distress ink before adhering it to the card, leaving a narrow white border as a frame.
