Technique Tuesday Release Day - Beautiful Dragonfly

Good morning! It's the 1st of the month - so RELEASE DAY for the July Release from Technique Tuesday - all products are available NOW!!! Lots of fun new stamps and dies in this release - make sure and check out the Technique Tuesday Blog to find links to all the Design Team's projects for today!

Today I'm featuring the gorgeous new Build a Dragonfly Dies - as well as a sentiment from the beautiful new Beautiful Dragonflies Stamp Set!

I started off by die cutting the wings and body of the Build a Dragonfly Die Set from white cardstock, then blending some distress ink over to add color. I then coated the wings with Glossy Accents and sprinkled with Distress Glitter, and the body just with Gloss Accents. I set those aside until dry, then adhered together - tucking the wings behind the body. The more technically correct and accurate way would be to add the wings on the top of the body, but I liked the way they looked here, so I employed some creative license! :)

Totally without trying, after I finished the dragonfly, I ended up finding pattern paper in my stash that coordinated PERFECTLY! How fun is that?!?!? I heat embossed my sentiment from Beautiful Dragonflies Stamp Set, mounted a white circle die cut with Circles Crafting Dies to create a focal point for the dragonfly to rest on, and finished off with some pretty white jewels from Pretty Pink Posh.
