Double D - Sentiment/Quote

Dear Ones~
This time over at Double D Team Darlene has challenged us to use a Sentiment or Quote on your card.

Here is the Mood Board provided for your inspiration:
 And here is my card:
The background for this card was so much fun to do. I saw a video over at Splitcoast Stampers showcasing the technique. You can watch it HERE. I used my Oxides and a stencil. The quote is one of my favorites. It's an old wood block rubber stamp by Inkadinkado, I have had it forever. The dragonflies are a die from Stampin' Up and I die cut it twice, once in black and once in purple glitter paper. Then I inlaid the wings with the glitter paper. I love doing inlay, it's like putting together a puzzle.

Here are the Ingredients:
GKD Wild Orchid and Black Card Stock
Recollections 110# White Card Stock
Canson XL Watercolor Paper
Distress Oxide Inks in Seedless Preserves & Wilted Violet
Inkadinkado Stamp
SU Dragonfly Dreams Die

  6. Beautiful design and sentiment. Love the dragon flies. Thanks for the video. I don't have many stencils, but you can ink an embossing folder and spritz it then lay paper on top and get nearly the same effect. You can emboss that way too and get more texture.
