Sending Smiles

Hello there, I hope you are all well. When I made this card using the Hero Arts Color Layering Dragonfly set, I thought it would look really pretty on vellum. I didn't want to do it for that design but went back to it and made this card.

I started off by creating a background for my dragonfly to sit on. I took a piece of watercolour paper and blended inks on to it. I used Hero Arts Tide Pool, Aquatic and Indigo. I then sprayed the piece with Hero Arts White Iridescent Shimmer Spray and splattered on some White Liquid Watercolor. I set the piece aside to dry and then cut it in to a square and mounted it to an A2 white card base with foam tape.

I stamped the dragonfly on to Vellum Cardstock using Versamark Ink. I applied Detail White Embossing Powder and heat set. It was then cut out with the coordinating die. I added this to the card with small dabs of Multi Medium Matte behind the embossing. I took a sentiment from the Hero Arts Many Everyday Messages set and stamped it on to Pitch Black Hero Hues Cardstock with Versamark ink. I applied the same embossing powder as the dragonfly and heat set. This was cut in to a strip and added to the card with more foam tape.

I think the dragonfly looks so pretty on vellum. I think it gives a lovely softness to the card against the brighter ink blending. Thank you so much for stopping by to see me today, I really do appreciate it. I hope you have a great day!


  1. It is the perfect image for vellum as it has lovely detail to it! And it looks gorgeous again that ink blended blue background. So pretty and delicate, I love it! xx

  2. Beautiful, the background sets the dragonfly off perfectly.
