Dragonfly card


I made this dragonfly card for this weeks post at Design in Papers. It was a very fun card to make! I masked the dragonfly using rubber cement to make the background using SpectrumAqua and Aqua Tints.

The dragonfly I colored with Aqua Tints, I mixed in the silver to make it shimmer like the real ones does. When I was done I covered the whole thing with Glossy Accent to make it dimensional and it looks almost real! This card did not need any decorations, I just picked a sentiment that fit the space and theme. it happened to be a Lawn Fawn stamp. 

So much fun and very pretty! Dragonflies are so summery, we had lots of them in the old cottage we used to spend the summers in. They sort of ticks when flying and when we rode our bikes they sttod still in the air over the road and you had to avoid running into them. I wish it would be more like summer now. The rain is absolutely pouring down and there is no real warmth in the air. 

I hope you liked the card, I'll be back soon. Until then, lets hope for summer ;)

If it's crafty I have probably tried it. Or plan to try it tomorrow. I love to be creative in all ways, but I tend to gravitate to making cards, coloring and diecutting. I also have a bad yarn shopping.... ehm... KNITTING... habit. I live in Sweden with my husband, two cute minions (also known as kids) and three dogs. I work from home at a small international development company during the days, and craft while listening to audio books or follow my favourite series at nights and on weekends. I love it when I don't have to leave the house, being an introvert and socially awkward and all. That's why my slippers to shoe ratio is close to 1:1 and I'm not ashamed to admit it ;)
