Dies Days 5: Dragonfly silhouettes

Dragonfly silhouettes

The inspiration for this panel was a vibrant tag made by Glenda Waterworth. I sponged the background in pinks, blues and yellow then stamped the glory of modesty background stamp in yellow over the sponging. The silhouetted leaves are stamped in versafine onyx black and the dragonflies die cut and attached with adhesive. This card is for my daughter who is turning 17 tomorrow and  just left to compete in a track meet in Quebec. I wish I had thought enough ahead to pop it in her bag! We are heading up to watch her run tomorrow so we can deliver it in person. I hope you have enjoyed the Creative Die posts this week. If you are looking for more inspiration check out the Penny Black blog and Jill’s Inspired By blog which have been featuring the dies all week also.
