Dragonfly Garden Gold Hoop Wreath for The Spot Challenge 148. This week the challenge is a colour combination and what a combination we have for you.
I have used the Dragonfly Bundle again this week, it is becoming one of my Go To bundles. BUT I need to explain something before I go on. The Dragonflies are stamped on Vellum in Night of Navy, then heat embossed with Clear Powder.
What is strange, and I can only think it is because there is some red/purple ink in the Night of Navy recipe, when you heat emboss the ink turns purple. So, please don’t think it is the pictures or that I have cheated, it is just one of those odd things that happen sometimes.
I have included Night of Navy for the mat and in the patterned paper, from In Good Taste Designer Series Paper, so I have tried my best! Dark Soft Sea Foam Stampin’ Blend has been added to back of the Forever Gold elements, with Petal Pink flowers (from the Wreath Builder dies) and centres from the Elegant Faceted Blends. To give the dragonfly some extra dimension, I added 2 sets of wings, as you have seen me do before.
I wanted everything to be grounded on one of our Gold Hoops. I have quite a few of these that I seem to be ignoring, so time to break them out and use them. These can be a little tricky to stick to your project, but I found that three mini glue dots, each folded in half, worked like a charm. I added them to the left side of the hoop so they are covered with the embellishment layers.
I felt that using any more colour would distract from the delicate feel of the project, so used a Thick White card base. So, what do you think? I hope you like it and will give our challenge a go. The link to the Challenge page is HERE, so pop over and take a look at the other Design Team Projects and then enter yourself.
