Fragile Dragonfly card by Vivian Keh

Hi there, folks!  Today I have a card for you that whipped up super fast!  Usually my projects are somewhat intricate.  But I swear this one was easy peasy.  Despite being so simple, the results are very much in line with a look that I love!
Fragile Dragonfly card by Vivian Keh
1. Mist a sturdy piece of paper ( I used Bristol Vellum) with water and a few colors of mists and allowit all to mix on the surface a bit.  Allow to dry.
2. Stamp with black ink.
3. Swipe distress ink along the edges.
4. Adhere to card base.

For this project, I used the beautifully ethereal Hampton Art/Art Warehouse "Vintage Dragonfly" PS0710 Woodblock Stamp. The detail in this magical creature is fantastic, don't you think?  Along the side, I used a bold, distressed HamptonArt/7 Gypsies "Fragile" PS0735 Woodblock Stamp.  
DESIGNER TIP: If you are nervous about misting, try playing around with it on a large surface, perhaps a whole sheet.  Then find areas that you like and cut them out to serve as a base for your project.
Until next time,
