This card started out quite differently to how it has finished up!
I was very lucky to attend a workshop recently with John Lockwood where we were using some of the Gerbera Collection dies including the rectangle. We also had the chance to get messy, well some of us got messy, others did not and others used rubber gloves!
The background and the back of the dragonflies were made with acetate and the Izink Pigment ink bottles, such a simple technique and everyone had a different look depending on which colour inks they chose.
The Gerbera rectangle was cut twice, once in white and then again in black for the shadow effect
I have then used the JoyCrafts Friendship Bench die and again, cut it twice once in black and once in white. This range is from the Deboss and Cut collection, so it needs to go through the machine with an embossing mat to get the full detail
The dragonflies are just stunning and the delicacy of the acetate background with the colours that I chose quite finished it off.
