Dragonfly


I ordered a wonderful ink storage unit from Mother Rubber Art Stamps so when I was browsing her site I also ordered some wonderful Moon Shadow Mist sprays. They come as a powder in a spray bottle then you add water and shake. This was my first attempt with Buccaneer Bay Blue on a piece of  8 1/2" X 11" white card stock. All the pieces you see on this card were cut out of that one piece of card stock. Needless to say I'm very pleased with the outcome.
I've also had this set of Spellbinder Shapabilities for almost 2 years. For some reason I just couldn't find the right time to use them. I guess this dragonfly was just waiting for this card. As you can see I love metallics. While the dragonfly was still in the die I rubbed some of my Metallic Rub-Ons over the openings, peeled him out and finished him off with more around the edges. Oh, you're not seeing double, I on purpose off set the flourish stamp by first stamping it then moving over slightly and stamping again without cleaning my stamp.

All your cards lately are beautiful but this is simply stunning! The background mists are a perfect foil for the swirls ;-)
