Dragonfly Dreams

Good Morning Crafters

Today we are sharing Lindsay's tutorial with you.

Here is a list of the Imagination Crafts products she has used.

Start by stamping out the image from the Dragonfly stamp set 3 times on to white card

Using Lavender Lace Silkies Paint, paint the dragonflies on the first stamped image (the front piece).
Using the paint straight from the tub on the bodies then mix with water on the wings to create a lighter more see through effect that shows the shimmer in the paint very well.

Next paint the left hand panel of the image (leaving the rest white) on the second stamped image (the middle piece) Lavender Lace, Bronze Brocade and Emerald Satin have been used.

Using the Turquoise Satin Silkies mixed with water to paint the right hand panel of the last stamped image (the back piece.

Once all the paint is dry then cut out each of the sections. For the back piece cut out the whole of the image including the white areas, for the middle piece just cut out the coloured panel and the dragonflies cutting away the right hand panel then for the front piece just cut out the dragonflies.

Using silicone based glue stick the middle piece onto the back piece and then the dragonflies from the front piece onto the middle piece giving the image depth.

Next select your base card and matting and layering using white, turquoise and bronze shimmer card, tearing tearing out the layers using a ruler to create a distressed edge rather than cutting them.

Stick the turquoise and bronze layers together then add small strips of purple ribbon across the 4 corners, securing the ribbon in place with tape on the back of the turquoise card.

When the ribbon was secured adhere the turquoise and bronze layers onto the card base the layered the white card and image on top of them.

To finish off stick bead sprays and a flower in two of the corners for added decoration.

We hope you have enjoyed this tutorial.
