Did you know that today is Friendship Day? I was not aware of it until yesterday. What a nice holiday to celebrate! I am fortunate to have many good friends and a few really great friends (You know who you are!) I love the Dragonfly Dreams stamp set and especially the sentiment, “To a wonderful friend..” Isn’t that the perfect choice for Friendship Day?

I was playing around with the Brusho Crystal Colours. I’m guessing you could tell!

Design Notes for Dragonfly Dreams Card:

I am always a bit perplexed by the colors for dragonflies. Each time I’ve made something with this set, I have to google “Dragonfly colors” to see what looks right. I’m getting closer to something I like with this card. It started with some Brusho Crystals, and a Spritzer.

  • First I spritzed an acrylic block with water
  • Next, I sprinkled some Brusho, Prussian Blue and Moss Green.
  • I pressed a piece of Water Color Card Stock onto the block – more than once!

After this picture, I did add a little of the yellow Brusho to the card stock piece and then used my Heat Tool on the piece to dry and flatten it.

After that, I used the Detailed Dragonfly Die and cut out out the dragonfly. Easy, right?

I thought it needed some sparkle so I traced around the die on the back of some Sparkle Glimmer Paper and cut out the top part. Then I was happy.
