A vintage dragonfly birthday

July 17th, 2014

Recently Daedalist requested a card for a male family member.  I decided to try out some new things I had to play with, and a different colour scheme to my usual ones.  I think it is quite striking.


black dragonfly card

White cardstock stained with Antique Linen Distress ink and edged with Vintage Photo Distress Ink.  The Stampers Anonymous Dragonfly legend was stamped with Vintage Photo ink.

Black Co’ordinations cardstock was embossed with a chicken wire embossing template, and then sanded back to show the core colour.  Dragonfly card image layered on top of the embossed card.  Ink swiped on part of the raised sanded parts of the card.  A piece of twill was swiped with Antique Linen ink then wrapped around the Dragonfly and embossed card.

Patterned paper distressed around the edges, swiped with Vintage Photo ink, and layered on to a black square folded card edged with Cosmic Copper Brilliance ink, then the Dragonfly panel layered on top.  Star punched from patterened paper offcut, edged with link and placed on the dragonfly pane.

The rest is below.


Black and white wedding

May 2nd, 2011

One of the girls at work got married and her colour scheme was black and white, with some hints of red.  This is the card I made that was given to her with a gift from the people at work – I chose the chandelier because she is a bit of a goth.  And although it didn’t scan well the dress was actually painted with irridescent white that has a red sheen.  All the central image has been hand coloured with Twinkling H20s
