Dragonfly Card ~Tutorial~

Hello everyone here is the card I made using the dragonfly tissue paper technique. See below I created the card using K and Co. Blue Awning, Cricut Storybook Accent/frame Pg. 72 cut at 5 1/2. The silhouette cattail was cut from Wild Card cut at 5 1/2. The stamp is from Stamp Oasis. I used alcohol inks to cover a clear acetate sheet using, green , blue, pearl, and white with the extender. I backed acetate with bown cardstock. You may click on picture to view closer. tfl.

Step 1

Gather supplies needed Pearl Ex, mica powders, glitters, Diamond glaze, gold or silver tissue paper, heat resistance transfer paper, stamps, black ink. Stamp your stamps onto a plain sheet of white typing paper using the darkest black ink you have. Using the white sheet of stamped paper run it thru your copier (darkest setting if you can adjust) using the transfer paper that it is being copied to. Allow to dry.

Step 2

Now using the same side that the print was made on (usually the rougher side) cover with the Diamond Glaze sprinkle on the mica powders, and the glitter.

Step 3

Now taking the tissue paper cut to fit may over lap ball up tissue paper in hand then open back up and place on your image. pressing.

Step 4

Now this what you should have, place on tissue side up to dry...I usually let it dry overnight or all day.

Step 5

When completely dry you may cut out image.

Step 6

This is another finished dragonfly ready to go on a page or a card, or any project. This was my first tutorial. Thanks for looking, hope this helps.
