Hi everyone, I'm on the Clear Scraps blog with a set of cards using the Dragonflies Chipboard Embellishments as stencils..
The dragonflies come as a pair and they just need to be clipped off the frame that surrounds them.
While spraying colors on the chipboard pieces, I realized I had created a wonderful background collage.
I chose to make cards from the paper I created with the spray inks and I put aside the chipboard dragonflies to use at another time.
I used slim line dies to create a card from black cardstock. I also die cut the top panel from the stenciled paper using the next smaller slim line die.
I created a 2nd card that measured 5" x 5".
I used a Lavinia stamp and gray ink to add a bit of depth on the square panel.
I used the same Lavinia stamp on the slim line panel. I wanted a subtle look so the gray ink was perfect.
Next, I inked around the edges of both panels with blue and black inks. It really brought the designs into focus.
The slim line panel was added to the black card and the square panel was added to a blue card. The hint of black along the edges really helps it stand out.
Using a left over scrap of the same paper, I stamped a phrase in gray ink, die cut it and matted it with a larger black circle. It was then added to the card with foam adhesives for dimension.
Using a left over scrap of the same paper, I stamped a difference phrase in gray ink, die cut it and matted it with a larger black circle. It was then added to the slim line card with foam adhesives for dimension.
So remember your chipboard embellishments can be used in different ways.
Thanks for stopping by.
