Dragonfly Dreams will Fly Away Soon. This is another project in my week featuring retiring items. There are lots on this card, and I mean LOTS. The stamp set, Dragonfly Dreams, was one of the very first I got at OnStage in a Prize Patrol. Did you know Demonstrators get FREE product if they attend the OnStage events? I generally think we get more product value than the fee for attending, plus we get the fun of going!
I have cheated a little with this card as I used the Rose Gold Shimmer Paint from Everything is Rosy, because I love it. Just mix it with some 70% rubbing alcohol to make a fantastic spray. I used this to ‘ground’ the dragonfly. It works particularly well on the Glossy Card. I heat embossed the dragonfly in gold and then die cut it. some Gold Metallic Thread adds some ‘something’, as do the Artisan Pearls.
I decided to stamp the dots in second and third generation Coastal Cabana Classic Ink, and the sentiment is in Early Espresso. Some of the Coastal Cabana Ribbon from the Tea Room Ribbon Combo is a great final accent.
I mounted the stamped layer on gold foil and then on a Coastal Cabana card base. Adding Dimensionals behind the gold foil gives added dimension (oops, pun alert!!) Oh, and remember to ‘gut’ your foil card. No one else will know you have done it!
