Sadly I needed another sympathy card this week so while doing the other challenge card I also did this one and will include it in the same challenges.
Using the same stencil and the emboss resist technique I added the larger dragonflies and heat embossed. Using the small stamp I repeated the process. I then sponged the colours over the top and polished the embossed bits to remove excess ink. I added some shimmer to the piece with my Shimmer Stix dauber. After cutting it to the correct size I added the different colour twine and bow at the side. Layered it onto the coloured piece and then added to card front.
I stamped the vertical greeting and heat embossed in gold and then did the same thing with the dragonfly stamp from a set called the Wetlands, GKD. Fussy cut them out and popped them up as shown. Added the greeting on the side. I like how this turned out as it has a softness to it that to me, seems perfect for sympathy.
