I had missed a dragonfly swap over on the Artful ATC group as it was before I joined the group but when someone suggested a small additional swap I jumped at the chance as I love Dragonflies.
I had to make three in total so here are my three…
This started life as a scrap from an inky gelli print and had additional distress stains added and then the dragonfly embossed using an emerald embossing powder. Then mounted onto navy and doodled the edge.
A distress oxide background which I then added a magazine stamp that has lots of writing scraps on it… Love this stamp a lot.
I then then stamped with versafine and partially heat embossed with black fine detail powder. As it only caught part of the image this provides a more ethereal quality to the shine. I did the same with the sentiment.
I then added a little gel pen colour to the dragonfly just to add some contrast.
And the final one…
This was a gelli plate painted background that I loved as it was so I added the dragonflies to a piece of acetate using Stayzon and mounted the layers using brads. I then mounted it onto a base with some craft foam to raise it off the back.
This is my favourite and yet it is also so simple.
Lovely additional swap done and dusted.
Happy crafting !
