Blue Dragonfly

This big dragonfly die deserves space for itself.

I made the background by using a flourish stencil to dry emboss, then inking over the card with Distress Oxide Inks.  Then a large background stamped over.  White acrylic paint (diluted) stamped using bubble wrap, then a space in the middle stamped with thicker white acrylic paint using a torn cardboard as a stamp. Flicked with shimmer mist and silver acrylic paint.

The dragonfly is misted with sheer mist and adhered with shredded gauze under.  Body is adorned with pearls, and the wings are left free.

Stencil: Tattered Angels flourish
Die: Spellbinders
Sentiment stamp silver embossed: Hero Arts
Background stamp: Rubbadubbadoo
Distress Oxide inks, Sheer Shimmer Mist, Gauze, White acrylic paint, silver acrylic paint, pearls
