My first card uses the dragonfly clear toner sheet foiled with Deco Foil Gold. My idea for both cards was to use the clear sheets as an overlay on Copic colored card fronts. The stamp set used is from Unity Stamp Company, I love all their stamps they are the highest quality red rubber stamps you will find. This kit is designed by Gracielle Designs called Strength & Hope, the dragonflies are so detailed and really pretty simple to color.them I ink blended a piece of cardstock with Taylored Expressions Blue Raspberry and Cookie Monster inks and randomly stamped the dragonflies over the ink blending for some texture. I used a Taylored Expressions frame die on the ink blended cardstock, I saved the center for a future card.. I then cut four additional frames out of thick cardstock to give some dimension. I used Thermoweb’s liquid glue it’s my absolute favorite to adhere the foiled acetate to the back of the ink blended frame. Then I adhered the additional frames behind that to sandwich the acetate. It gives lift and makes the frame more sturdy. Then I placed the frame over my Copic colored front and popped the whole thing onto a card base. This card took a little time to color and assemble but I think the end result is worth it. The foiled dragonflies hovering over the colored images is really pretty. Below is a closeup photo to see the beautiful details of that stamp and the shine of the Gold Deco Foil.
My second card uses the same Unity Stamp set and this time I used Silver Deco Foil for the dragonfly clear toner sheet. I colored the image with Copic markers in a variety of purples and the bottom portion in dark gray to mimic a night sky. Then I ink blended the rest of the card using Taylored Expressions inks the colors are Jelly Donut, Plum Punch and Lollipop. Then I took the foiled acetate and put tiny drops of glue behind each little foiled dragonfly and adhered it directly to the colored card front. The sentiment is from the same Unity Stamp Company Kit. I liked the dramatic look of the dark background contrasting with the shine of the silver foil. Below is a close up.
I hope you enjoyed my projects for today and it gave you some inspiration to create something beautiful.❤️
