Metallic Dragonfly

This card was basically made using metallic rub-ons (by Craf-T Products) and black cardstock. This is a versatile technique featured in the TechniqueJunkies February 2004 newsletter (see sidebar for link).

Finished card measures 5 1/2" x 4 1/4"

The background cs is rub-ons applied randomly and then stamped over with a Great Impressions veining stamp using white Staz-On ink.

The dragonfly image is by Stampin' Up! (Measure of a Life set). The wings are highlighted with a sparkling Sakura Gelly Roll pen which doesn't show up well in a scan. The grid is Magic Mesh and the dangles are cs rolled around toothpicks to shape. IRL the cording is a metallic sheen in a brownish-plum. This is one of those cards that definitely looks better in person.

Thanks for looking!
