Hello and Happy Friday to you! We have stempelfrida here on the blog today with a fabulous summer card featuring the dragonfly stamp from our NEW ‘Summer Wings’ set…
I have brought my Visible Image day earlier, because yay, a new release of Visible Image is here! It consists of six new stamp sets and they are once again very different from the previous ones. Have you looked yet? Already now you can pre-order the stamps, they will be delivered at the end of this month. As always I was allowed to play with some of them. Today I used the set with the dragonfly called “Summer wings”.
The background for my card is a gelli plate print. Besides blue/aqua tones I also used gold, which you will also find on other elements like the flowers and the dragonfly. The print is not very sophisticated technique wise. The ovals are made by just rolling a spot of paint with the brayer the longer lines are made with wood sticks.
I stamped the dragonfly with Versamark and embossed it with a powder consisting of different colours of the ocean. I then coloured it with Twinkling H2Os. Do you know those? I didn´t use them for ages. They are water colours with lots of shimmer and give a wonderful glittery look. I found that perfect for the dragonfly. I bent the wings and the body a bit.
The flowers are also stamped with Versamark and then embossed in gold. They are from an older set called “Visometry” and are actually geometric elements. They go wonderfully with the dragonfly, have you noticed? The structures on the wings reflect the flowers. Or vice versa. Then I coloured the flowers with watercolour.
Embossing powder: Kartenkunst gold, Ozean
Twinkling H2O Guatemalian Green, Navajo Pearl, Bolivian Blue, Mustard Green, Iridescent gold
Water colour: Schmincke HORADAM
What a fabulous summer card! We love your background for these stamps and the touches of gold against the blues. Thank you stempelfrida ♡
