Dragonfly and D1187

I went to the Hampton Stamp/Scrap Art show Saturday with Eleanor, Sonnie and Barbara while I was there I came across a booth called Sweet Stamps and they had a card that I fell in love with because I just love dragonflies, their card was made using a Cheery Lynn Designs die, I didn't own any of these until I saw their card and had to get it. I ended up spending most of my money at the Hampton show, there was so much to see and learn. We ladies had a great time Saturday, after we left Hampton they took me to a little scrapbook store in Williamsburg, it was a nice place, after we left there we hit the Walmart, I just wanted to stop by and see maybe if they had the Cricut catrtridge "Love you a Latte" that I have been wanting but couldn't not find, well I was so excited because they had just one left and it came home with me, I have been wanting this one for awhile. I will be posting a few cards later using this.

I had to play some today, so I pulled out my new little dragonfly die, and decided to try to make a card like the one I had seen. This dragonfly is cut out twice once in black then again on vanilla cream cs, take the black dragonfly and place where the vc one came out, turn over and place scor-tape over wings, now here is where it starts to get fun, you take and turn the card back over, take prisma glitter and rub into wings so it adhears to wings on front, then turn card back over and remove the paper from the scor-tape and place vellum onto wings and then add color to the vellum from back, this gives the wings colors and it looks almost like stained glass. I used Copics to color. I may have to try to do a little video to explain this better.

So this is a close up of my little dragonfly and you can see the two different shades of color that I used.

Love this dragon cards--sounds like alot of work. Our Walmart is clearing out all the Cricut stuff. I had to pay big bucks (full price) for the cartridge on ebay--but it was worth it. The Love you Latta is a great cartridge!
