Hey there. I've been a bad blogger lately. I'm not sure why exactly, except that I just haven't had a lot of time or motivation. At any rate, here is a sympathy card I made last week for a good friend whose father recently passed away.
I don't recall whose stamp the dragonfly is, but the sentiment is from Papertrey Ink and the paper and brads are from Kaisercraft. I stamped the dragonfly twice using Stampin' Up Old Olive ink, cut out one of the images and painted it with Iced Lavender Shimmerz paint and adhered it on top of the other image. I only adhered the body and left the wings loose so they could be shaped to add some dimension. The background was sponged with PTI Lavender Moon ink while it was still in the die.
The ribbon is also PTI Lavender Moon and I colored an ivory button with a Copic marker so it matched the ribbon better. The dragonfly charm is from my stash.
I thought the Legend of the Dragonfly would be a nice addition to the card, so I printed it in green, matted it on lavender paper and adhered it inside the card. Here it is if you're not familiar with it (click on the photo to see it bigger).
That's about it. Hope your week is going well! Thanks for looking!
