Dragonfly dreams part IIIand Lift me up

Here is the third part of the cards using the Dragonfly Dreams stamps and co-ordinating Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits dies

I cased the following card  from Pinterest as I thought the technique and overall finished effect was absolutely stunning and can be used in a variety of different colour combinations




Colour combination for this card is Mint Macaron, Island Indigo and Emeral Envy.  Each stamp pad was stamped a couple of times onto one piece of acetate and then spritzed with water to get the colours to combine and mix with each other. Using a strip of shimmery white card which has also been spritzed with water  place it on top of the acetate and carefully press down to transfer the colours to the card and then leave to dry and you will be amazed at the effect you have created!

Once the image was dry the dragonfly was randomly stamped on top in Emerald Envy and the spots in Island indigo.

The dragonflies were kept whole for this card with no fussing cutting!
