D is for Dragonflies

Hello there. The Alphabet Challenge has reached the letter ‘D‘, and Caz has chosen the theme of ‘Dragonflies‘. Here is my creation:

So – it’s a little different to my usual creations, isn’t it? I challenged myself to use some of my crafty stash – things which have been sitting there for absolutely ages……and items which do not come easily to me to use.

The star of the show is that dragonfly, a die set from Stampin’ Up, but taken up a notch using double sided sticky sheets and glitter flakes. I first adhered the sticky sheet to a piece of card, rubbed in the glitter flakes, then die cut. I added the solid layer behind, and only stuck down the main body of the dragonfly – not the wings and tail end.

Once I had him made, I decided to use some of my 49 and Market ‘stuff’.

I attached a green base layer to my 5 x 7 inch card base, then added some tickets and the main sentiment, then went to town adding the flowers and leaves with collage medium. I even found a shiny button thingy and added that too. These items are from Craft Box UK, and 49 and Market I think.

So very much outside of my normal creations, but I challenged myself, I am happy with the outcome.

I hope you can come and join us with your dragonfly creations. xx

  3. That dragonfly is amazing. I’ve used gilded flakes before but I find it a pain using them so don’t do it often. Must take another look as the way this dragonfly looks makes it worthwhile. Love all the elements on this card. It is beautiful.
