Dragonfly Sparkle

Greetings to you all, hoping you are well.
With the exception of yesterday, I am doing quite well combatting procrastination!  Day 14, I made this card (using a background I had stamped many moons ago!).

The dragonflies are from the Peerless Craft mixed media stencil and I used Sweet Poppy Stencils paste to get them on the page, then different glitters to decorate-I love this technique! If you ever get the opportunity to watch a demo given by the lovely lady of Sweet Poppy, then don't pass it up because she's a real artist with that glitter!

Due to the time of year, I decided to make this a Mothers' Day card :)
I used:
Visible Image stamps: Bronte Border and ink splats
Verafine Onyx Black
Peerless Craft Dragonfly Mixed Media Stencil
Sweet Poppy Pearlescent White Paste
Sweet Poppy Satin Glitter: Purple, Ice Blue and Moss Green
and from my stash: red glitter, purple glitter, twine, teal card, black card, Mothers'Day stamp, bling and Candi.

I'm off now to figure out how to get an online shop (wish me luck-technology is not always my friend!), but I plan to be creating again later xx

Thank you for stopping by and, until next time, Happy Crafting!
