Dragonfly Dreams & Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits!


Ok!  
That was as close as I could get to turning myself into a dragonfly!  
"Stamp like a dragonfly, sting like a bee" 
It's almost the same as Muhammad Ali's motto, 
but MUCH craftier!

As always the people designing for the catalog came up with fantastic ideas!


As you know, I love all things bees and butterflies and dragonflys!
SO I can tell you, this set was a huge hit with me.  
This is also one of those sets the allows you to go "all out" or "super simple".
the possibilities are ENDLESS.........

I heat embossed the dragonfly in black, then used ink pads and the Aqua Painter to watercolor the wings.  For dimension I added some Silver Metallic Thread, some retired enamel dots and Rhinestone Basic Jewels. I just loved how crisp and simple this turned out. 

Brusho, Brusho, Brusho! for the cool splatter background. The paper that looks oddly pinkish here is actually Shimmery White Cardstock, with a touch of Basic Pearl Jewels, for a sophisticated touch. 

This one was stamped and heat embossed and watercolored just like the first one..........

With some Wink of Stella, for a sparkly winner. 

Bees!  Layered using the Detailed Dragonfly thinlits. The sentiment was stamped with Versamark and heat embossed with White Stampin Emboss Powder. I also added an array of old embellishments for fun. 

 
for stopping by.
