Dragonfly Dreams

I am currently on the Splitcoaststampers Stampin' Up! Creative Crew Design Team. One of the categories we are supposed to design a card for is called "Love a Technique". Our challenge is to visit the tutorial page (click here) and make a card using one of the tutorials. tie-dye background tutorial had just been featured the week before, so I decided since I LOVE that technique, to make my sample using it. Unless noted, all products Stampin' Up!

For this card, I used the technique, which entails coloring ordinary white coffee filters with inks & baby wipes to make a tie-dye background. I wanted a little twist on the technique, so once I dyed the coffee filter, I tore it in strips and glued to the card base in an abstract fashion. The dragonfly die cut is from the Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits. I have placed a small piece of cheesecloth behind the dragonfly and embellished the dragonfly with new Clear Faceted Gems. I always need blank cards, so I left the front without a sentiment. I love the way it turned out!
