At last I've had chance to make something for The Craft Barn's Calendar Challenge where the theme for June is DRAGONFLIES and LAVENDER.
Lavender is a funny colour as the flowers can be pink or blue - I've gone for a bluer version with the background coloured with Shaded Lilac and Tumbled Glass Distress Stains. I've stamped the foliage from Tim Holtz's Fairytale Frenzy set with Pearlescent Lavender Brilliance and then added the dragonfly.
I was looking for a realistic dragonfly stamp but had no joy so I invested in Tim Holtz's Dragonfly die - not only do you get a die, but you also get an embossing folder too. I cut three layers - the base out of some silver glittery card, a black body and some acetate wings which I embossed and alcohol inked. I took the photo with flash so you get to see the full shimmer!!
So we're halfway through the year so thought I'd show you the first 6 altogether. Hope you like and thanks for looking - I'm off to see what everyone else has made!!
