Dragonfly flight


Hi everyone, I have a card I made for a friend to share today and using a very pretty stamp set by Crafty Individuals to make the main panel and some gorgeous pink card for the base.


I've made a distress ink background using the wrinkle free distress and spritz and flick techniques and then stamped the images. I took out as much of the colour as I could from the image with water and then used a little bleach on a Ranger nib to take out the rest. I've decorated with stickles, some roses and metal corners.

Enjoy your day.

Hi Chris, your background is stunning and I love how you removed the colour with the water and bleach, I must try that technique. The stickles add a lovely sparkle and I really love the CI stamp too. Gorgeous card. Hugs, Anne x
