CI06 - Dragonfly Dreams

Hello lovelies!

Today I am sharing a card created with the Dragonfly Dreams bundle, oh how I have wanted this set and now I have it!! I'll try to not make every card with it, but no promises,ok?

The Dragonfly Dreams stamp set has some gorgeous sentiments and I love that bokkeh stamp. In my card I stamped it first with Pool Party and then again in Versamark for some gold embossing love. The stamp set also has the cutest little bee that is dying to be on a card. That needs be my project after I finish this blog post......

My colour scheme was inspired by the Colour INKspiration colour swatch pictured below; Night of Navy, Pool Party, Calypso Coral & Gold. Colour INKspiration is a fun fortnightly colour challenge that anyone can participate in, all you need is Facebook.
The gold foil mat really gives it a bit of pizzazz and the hexagon embossing folder gives amazing texture. Can you see that my dragonfly has three layers? Firstly I stamped the dragonfly onto Calypso Coral with Black Archival Ink, then I die cut a Night of Navy intricate dragonfly and for the final layer I cut the outline dragonfly from the Foil Designer acetate sheets ( how cool are these that they are double sided? Gold on one side, silver the other!) All three layers were only adhered along the dragonfly's body so that his wings could be free and three dimensional. Thank you for stopping by today, I would love if you could just give me a quick comment so that I know I'm not talking to myself!!! Not that there is anything wrong with that, I do that all the time especially when creating and yes, I answer myself too! You know what they say.......

Cheers Megan xx
