New Year for Crafting with Dragonflies!

Hi Everyone - this is the first 2018 challenge #96: Crafting with Dragonflies and as usual across the crafting world, it is

"Anything Goes"

with the exception that it MUST be a card!

This is mine:


I made the background when I was playing with the new Brusho's from Stampin Up.
This is in fact the second edition piece-- the one I laid on top of the first one to mop up some paint and water. It all looked so pretty and suited the idea of the line of glitter flakes across the middle and the simple sentimental heart message. 


This is embossed in gold onto some card and a bit of ink smeared across the white to make it stand out a bit more


I loved how the paint had melded into the water and then the paper - except the gold; it clumped a bit.


The glitter flakes were added using double sided tape and careful pushing or mooshing with my fingers to get them to stick - still some occasionally falling off but they are mostly stuck down well now. It just looks luxurious with them on the card. Imagine them in a shaker card - yummy!

You have a fortnight to create!
