July4Back with a natural colour theme today and some florals and dragonflies to complement the theme.

I started with glossy card and inked over randomly the dragonfly with Versamark.  I then added a few touches of the crackle stamp in versamark too – just wrapped around my fingertip so I just touched a little pattern here and there in between the dragonflies.

Once dry, I added Toffee Crunch, Bamboo Leaves and a little Cantaloupe Memento inks and rubbed over with  a tissue so that the resist dragonflies were clear.

July4aNext I stamped with Summer Garden from Crafty Individuals in the Toffee Crunch.  It came out much paler than I wanted so I stamped again with Potting soil Archival ink – it wasn’t exactly matched, but once all the ink had dried it gave a nice shadow effect.

I stamped my two dragonflies in potting soil too.

Finally it was lots of white highlighting to bring it to life.

One more in the series to come.. with a bit of heat embossing tomorrow too.

happy crafting
