Welcome back to the January Joyful Stars Blog Hop! We are a group of Close to My Heart consultants who share something each month on the 9th and at 9PM EST. If you are coming from Krista Hersheberger's blog you are on the right track. (The complete lineup is also on Joyce's blog in case you get lost.) Have fun being inspired!
I started this card by creating the center panel with the "smooshing" technique. Raspberry, Tangerine and Blossom inks were stamped onto a sheet of acetate and spritzed with water and then the paper was placed on the inky acetate. The results are unpredictable and one of a kind creations. The Dreamin' Big dragonfly was gold embossed onto Pansy CS. Tiny pearls were placed onto the top set of wings. Drops of Silver Glitz Glitter Gel and Pink Glitz Glitter Gel were put on the background panel. The dragonfly Thin Cut die was used to cut out the butterfly and a piece of thin craft foam to give it some added dimension.

Now it's time to hop on over to see what my friend Jen Benner has to share. I'm sure you'll be inspired by her artwork.
Thanks for stopping by! Have a wonderful week filled with fun and creativity!
