Stepping Up - Wishing you A Wonderful day

Welcome back crafty people :)

I have had a good weekend creating and preparing for a couple of upcoming events planned on my blog calender + my first ever live class/chat.
 I had a bit of a rough run this morning with the live class, my internet kept dropping out.
I ended up doing laps of my house just to pick up the connection again. Just goes to show even with everything set and ready to tock, Murphy's Law will still find a way to screw with you lmao.

 This was my planned FB Live class for this morning.

Craf fronts from step 1 to step 4

  1. In step one you can see a grouping of stamped images. Starting with the special reason flowers. The small flower was stamped 3 times only inked once. This gives the illusion of layers. I have added Clear wink  of stella to the dragonfly wings.without having to die cut. 
  2. I added the twine and lifted up the sentiment onto a banner. The addition of the bow helps to finish this card.
  3. For this step I added more depth by stamping then die cutting out the leaves and the body of the dragonfly 
  4. Final step I added a stamped and die cut flower to go with the leaves. I also added a die cut dragonfly. This was stamped onto vellum, then painted over the wings with Clear wink of stella, bending the wings gives the illusion of flight..For the final touch I removed the back of 3 white perfect accents and added these as water droplets on the leaves.


this is the same for each card.

I tried to use the inside of the card as a demonstration for the process of stamping and how I created the focal image for the four cards fronts.

What do you think of these pretty colours together??
Reminds me of srping and summer :)

 I have placed these cards after step 1 on more of an angle to better see what some of the additions were mentioned in the steps above and allow to view a bit better the layers..

I will place the links to both videos below
