Don’t you just love Dragonflies? I really like how this sympathy card turned out. I heat embossed the dragonfly from Visible Images “Live in the Moment” stamp set on a gel press print and added a Rubbernecker Three Line Frame border.
My sister-in-law loves dragonflies too so I made this card for her birthday this month. I ink blended my background and then heat embossed the dragonflies and sentiment.
I had a strip of background left over so I made a third card…I love bonus cards!
Hello and welcome. Today we are making masculine cards at The Watercooler Wednesday Challenge and Marsha is our hostess. I like the look of grunge/mixed media cards but I\’ve never made one myself. I decided to give it a try with this dragonfly.
I started by inking my glass media mat with various shades distress ink. I sprayed with water and then laid a sheet of watercolor paper on the ink/water. I dried with a heat tool and repeated this process a couple of times.
After the panel was dry I stenciled and stamped random elements on the panel
I then heat embossed the dragonfly and sentiment.
Visible Images \”Live In the Moment\” dragonfly stamp
Masculine cards are usually the most difficult for me and I needed one for my brother\’s birthday. I love dragonflys and thought it would be fun to emboss a series across the page in Nuvo Hot Chocolate Embossing powder.
Last summer I won first place in AAA 4th Birthday CAS Challenge and the prize was a generous gift certificate to Visible Image\’s shop. I did not have any of their stamps and I picked out 4 sets including this one called Live in the Moment.
I colored the wings with Copic markers (Y17, YG01, YG03). I then made an accent strip using Altenew Espresso Crisp Dye Ink and mounted it on a Kraft card.
