More Dragonflies

Hi there.  I'm so glad you stopped by!

This stenciled dragonfly background was in my UFO box.

I'd used VersaMark through the stencil, removed the stencil,
 then sprinkled a sparkly embossing powder over the top and heat embossed.

The die cut dragonfly is from a Memory Box Corner die.  It was easy to snip
him away from the grasses.  I smacked him into the embossing pad (don't
worry, I did it quite gently) and heat embossed him with the same powder.
I gave him another coat for good measure.

The cattails die is unnamed.  It was a gift from a sweet friend.

I've done a lot to empty that UFO box.  Unfortunately the UFOs seem
to be multiplying!  Do you have that problem too?

You know by now how much I love these little hitchhikers! I'm betting that guy didn't mind a gentle smoosh one bit!
A lovely card!

This is so pretty. Sparkly and I love those cattails peeking out. They just pop against the turquoise.

What a beautiful way to finish up that background, Bonnie. The cattail die was a great addition and pops agains the turquoise cardstock.

Love that glittered embossing powder especially on the die cut dragonfly. I have that framed die too and never thought to snip it out of there. Gorgeous card, Bonnie!

I love the beautiful stencilled and embossed dragonflies Bonnie, and the added sparkly coordinating one over the top, and the white double layered stitched mat and the cattails stand out so well against that gorgeous rich turquoise blue card. x

Gorgeous card. I love all the elements, especially the cat tails.

What beautiful use of your exquisite stencilled piece Bonnie - glad you were gentle when smacking the dragonfly into the pad ;).
YEs, the contents of those UFO boxes must misbehave when the lights are turned off! Mine keep multiplying too!

Cat Craig said...

Love that sparkling dragonfly sitting upon the stenciled dragonflies. Such a nice repeater.

Leslie Miller said...

This is sooo pretty, Bonnie. Why haven't I thought to snip off that little dragonfly? He looks amazing with the turquoise sparkle. You remind me I have an unused cattails die, too. Sheesh. Yes, those UFOs do grow. I keep trying to use them but their numbers never seem to go down.

Your stenciled and heat-embossed dragonflies are sooo pretty, Bonnie, and the white cattails pop against the Turquoise card base beautifully!
Thank you for reminding me of a great way of using a part of a frame die!
