Stampendous! Sunday

Shhh...I know Iam off a day. It should be Stampendous! Saturday and Scrappy Sunday. But I have a layout to finish up for tomorrow so I'm changing it up a bit!

Did you see yesterday's post at the Stampendous! blog? "Introducing Fran-tage!" Be sure to go check it out for lots of gorgeous eye candy! My card today isn't totally collage-y but it sort of fits with the theme of these lovely new stamps from Stampendous!

I am going back a bit to my old stamping days here and getting out of my proverbial box. For the background on the main panel I spritzed a combination of Creme de Chocolat and Tattered Rose Glimmer Mists. After that was dry (and yes I hit it with the heat gun) I stamped and embossed the new Dragonfly Vine and embossed it with Olive and Chocolate EP from Stampendous!

The background on the card is also embossed with Stampendous! Mushroom EP using the new Dream Forever stamp.

The final step was to rub a touch of metallic chalk (Craf-T Products) into the wings of the dragonfly. Here's a couple of closeup shots.

  1. Gorgeous card, Cyndi! Of course, dragonflies are my fave, but I love what you did with this stamp. Love the embossing and mists that you used. Lots of depth.
