Not too long and it will be the weekend. Don't the weeks seem to be rushing passed quickly. I do like the longer days I feel like I can get so much done. I have set time aside at the weekend to get on with the wedding invitations I have been asked to make, I do keep putting them off, but then I do keep being asked to make other cards. I will get them done in time I would never let anyone down.
On to today's cards, I got a free dragonfly stamp and matching die with a magazine and I decided to have a play with them. I would like to enter it for Pixie's Snippets Playground - 173 as you can see from the design lots of snippets were used in both cards.
This is actually the second card I made, I do like this one more. The background had been laying around for a while since I made another card it hadn't work so well so it needed to be covered up a bit more. The paper was inked over with Distress ink and then spritzed with water and dabbed with paper towel to remove some of the moisture.
This shows the detail of the stamp. I cut a plain dragonfly to put behind the stamped dragonfly.
The sentiment was stamped with a stamp I had in my stash I inked round the edge and matted it on to black.
This is the first card I made. I had the the backing paper for a while and I thought of it immediately when I got the stamp and die set.
This time I cut a mauve dragonfly to put under the stamped dragonfly. The greeting was stamped straight onto the paper.
There are the two cards near to each other. They are both 6" x 6" cards and nice and flat for posting.
Enjoy the rest of the week.
