Dragonfly Dreams

This is a design by Kay Carly, who also designed the stamps used.  The main focal panel is stamped and heat embossed in black then painted with H2O's.  The image is cut out and matted onto black card, then cut out to leave a small black edge which makes the image pop out.  Another piece of black card is stamped with text and heat embossed in gold.  The background is a panel of cream card, that is first stamped with an outline stamp of bamboo leaves.  Then the images are overstamped with the matching solid bamboo leaves stamp.   The edges of the background are tinted with a paler ink.  Some text is stamped and heat embossed in gold onto a strip of vellum and attached  to the background with brads.  The panel is then matted onto black card, the black text panel is offset on top and the focal panel is offset on top of that using dimensional glue.  The base card is stamped around the edges with a bamboo image and the assembled panels attached.  A few pieces of cord have been attached before the focal panel was.
