Create with an Intricate Die

Hello friends!

 I am popping in with a quick post about this detailed die from Penny Black collection (Bliss).
Dragonfly Frame

Like most ornate or complicated images, I often resort to my little technique. I call it "Divide and Conquer". It seems to work for me every time. First I focus on coloring the dragonfly with Zig Markers and a touch of water on Bristol paper. After all that was dry, I thought it would be neat to have some silver embossing and that's what I did. This Stampendous Boss Gloss Embossing Ink is very handy when it comes to do detail-embossing.


Since the image is so dominant in the entire card front, I decided to left it as is without adding sentiment. A few extra sequins were all what's needed.

Hope you like my take with this intricate Dragonfly Frame die.
Also, I want to pass on the copic sale info.

Crushing all over your pretty dragonfly, nestled in the lovely silver frame! Your 'divide and conquer'technique works marvelously here!

However you constructed this, the end result is nothing short of fabulous. All that glorious color partially surrounded with the glimmer of silver. And, as always, perfectly embellished.
