Dragonfly Dreams

Oh…what a fun theme we have for the SUO Challenge this time!  For those of you who know me you know I just LOVE dragonflies – hmmm…do you think the banner here on my blog gives that away?  LOL!!!  I do LOVE dragonflies so when I saw the theme was butterflies or dragonflies, I of course KNEW which I was going to use!

Two Saturdays ago the Create with Connie and Mary Design Team Saturday Blog Hop featured reinker techniques.  I forgot how much I enjoy doing the smoosh ink technique and since I still had that idea in mind, I decided to use it again for my card today…well, along with my dragonfly!

Here’s the details…

  • Pool Party – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Whisper White – using the smoosh technique I used Lemon Lime Twist, Pool Party, and Emerald Envy reinkers, acetate and water to create the background.  Once done, I trimmed the sheet down to 3 1/2 x 4 3/4, layered onto Emerald Envy 3 5/8 x 4 7/8 and add to card front.
  • Emerald Envy – 5/8 x 3 5/8, add to card front
  • Silver Glimmer – 1/8 x 4 1/4, add to card front
  • Lemon Lime Twist – 5/8 x 3 1/2, stamp greeting using Emerald Envy, cut into banner on both ends and add using dimensionals
  • Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer – cut out detailed smaller dragonfly
  • Vellum – cut out solid dragonfly, layer behind Dazzling Diamonds Detailed dragonfly, add to cardfront using dimensionals
  • Add some Perfect White Accents to finish off

Don’t forget to check out what the rest of the design team to see their wonderful creations!
