Dragonflies & Fairies

"May you touch Dragonflies and Stars, 
dance with Fairies and talk to the Moon"

  Love the new Tim Holtz/Sizzix Layered Dragonfly die with matching embossing folder! Had lots of fun making this big tag! I used a Rangers manilla tag, 5 1/8" x 10 1/2". Covered one side with various Distress Inks, spritzed with water and a dash here and there of Glimmer Mists.
 The trellis on the left was made with Sizzix Frameworks Trellis die cut and scrap purple patterned paper. Added some tissue tape on the sides and bottom areas. Stamped some areas with background stamps and stencils. 
  Added some wooden stars that were glittered with Distress Stickles. Corner die is from Cheery Lynn. 
  The cute little fairy swinging on the moon is a stamp that I paper pieced and coloured with chalks. Also added some vellum on her wings. She is from a stamp set by Clear Arts Stamps. The stamp set is a fairy theme. Picked it up from The Cutting Garden yard sale last year. The quote I found on Pinterest and was perfect for this! Made if from a label machine Mike bought.
  The flower is from Michaels $1.50 bin. Tinted some cheesecloth with Distress Ink Scattered Straw. Seam binding bow tinted with Distress Inks and I added some tulle.
  The dragonfly took a while to get it the way I wanted it. Three layers of wings! The top wings are cut from vellum and I used Pebbles Metallic Chalks to colour; spread colour on with my fingers! The body is layered with Distress Stickles Tarnished Brass and Vintage Photo. For the antennae I used very thin black wire.

 For you local crafters, I bought the dragonfly die cut/embossing folder combo set from Kim at The Cutting Garden. There is also a bee set and butterfly set! May have to save my pennies for those sets!

 Just had our first week of vacation and going into our second. No plans, just playing it day by day! Thanks for stopping by! Have a great weekend and hope you get inky!

i made it myself!
