Dragonfly Wishes


This is a card I made for the new challenge at Crafting with Dragonflies. I created this card using pergamano (embossing and piercing parchment paper). I did not use any piercing on this particular piece. The vellum is a design from Pergamano and I layered it over Lovely Lilac card stock from Stampin' Up! I traced and embossed the thistle flowers on plain parchment and layered that on top of the Lovely Lilac card stock as well. I embossed and then cut out 6 of the flowers and laid them diagonally over the two different vellums to hide overlapping and added purple bling to the centers. I stamped the sentiment (Fiskars Birthday Sentiments set) with Memento Black Tuxedo right on top of the vellum. The dragonfly (Celtic Dragonfly from Stamp Oasis) was stamped on white card stock and colored with Copic markers (V20, V24, V28). I cut out the dragonfly  and added clear crystals to the head, wings and body and colored them with the V28 Copic marker and used pop dots to adhere it to the card.
