New Month - New Theme at MMM
Make My Monday. Thanks to Fliss for the Vintage theme last month which was greatly enjoyable. For August we have Suzanne's choice of WINGS AND THINGS, each week, there will be a different challenge, around the theme, starting this week with Butterflies or Dragonflies, I seem to have been the only one who chose dragonflies, for I think they can be just as beautiful as a butterfly, I started by mmaking, what I call a stubby Diamond fold card. I stamped on the lower section with a crackle stamp and added a greeting. The main topper on the diamond fold, was first coloured with Distress inks, dried, stamped with Versamark, again with the crackle stamp and a small swirl stamp. I then gently brushed onto the topper, gold and copper mica powders, which I then dried with my heat tool. Finally I stamped the dragonflies using Memento Tuxedo black ink. Give it a try, it's great fun and you can get some wonderful results by experimenting. Good luck and have fun.
