The new Dazzling Dragonfly pauses on a shimmery gold-stenciled background from the Modern Border Trim set - clean, simple and very easy!  Hi -  Jean Okimoto here - with a quick design for your busy holiday weekend.

Cut watercolor paper with the the 1-¾" x 3"  Rectangle Basics Set die.  Press the inks from  an Imagine Crafts Caribbean Sea Kaleidacolor inkpad onto a large acrylic stamp block to create a palette.  Paint the inks onto the watercolor paper with a flat paintbrush.  Dry the inks.

Diecut a stencil of  the Modern Border Trim's dotted pattern from The Crafter's Workshop stencil sheet.  Create a shimmery background by stenciling Delicata Golden Glitz onto the watercolor paper. 

Diecut Dazzling Dragonfly from gold mirror cardstock.  

Attach the pieces to a top-folded A-2 card of turquoise cardstock.  Add small gold sequins.

Wasn't that easy?  If you have a few minutes - diecut and watercolor a bunch of backgrounds for your favorite Memory Box dies.  They'll be ready when you need them - and would create the perfect backdrop for butterflies and birds too.

Thanks for stopping by...see you again this evening!
