Thank You Dragonfly



Hello everyone! I am sorry that I have been MIA the last couple of days. I have been re-decorating my bathroom and getting things ready for my son's graduation party.
I am going to start "blogging" a little different. I have been using so many stamps that my posts get really long, so I am going to start adding a supply list at the bottom of my posts. I see so many others like this and it seems to be easier for me and for my faithful followers to understand.
I stamped the background clouds twice. One for the main background and the second so I could cut the clouds out and use them as a mask.( My little tip for this is to # the pieces and keep them in a plastic bag so you only have to do this once!) After the cloud pieces were cut out I glued them over the stamped background using re-positionable glue. I then stamped the hearts over the entire background. I then removed the cloud mask's and colored the hearts with a copic marker. I also added a white highlight to them and Glossy Accents.
The dragonfly was stamped and paper pieced. I changed up the face and used a Cornies face instead. I mounded her to mats that are from the Nestibilities Lacy Circles. I also added Glossy Accents to the eyes, tooth, and antenna. To finish I tied a bow and stamped the sentiment.
Supplies:
Peachy Keen stamps- Faceless Bugs, Cornies Faces, Clouds Background, Valentine Cupids, Vivienne and Friends
Nestabilies- Lacey Circles
Copic Marker- B00 Frost Blue
Glossy Accents

I am going to enter this into Peachy Keen's challenge this week which is Cards only and create your own stamped background.
Thanks for looking and don't forget that I will be picking the winner for the PK Clouds Background on Tuesday! Have a great day!
