In the springtime

I am delighted to have been asked to be a guest designer on the Fantasy stampers challenge, In the Springtime.
After a lot of thought I decided to use
 The RURAL Springtime collection, by clear impressions.
I chose the spring wishes wreath, Dragonfly, flowers bloom sentiment and the daisy for my design.

Firstly I did a gelli plate background using distress inks on Clarity stamp GELLI card 7x7, I used twisted citron and squeezed lemonade shades. However you could use any colour you like to tone in with your design.
I then stamped  a few dragon flies and some daisies using black Archival onto Clarity stamps Theuvacard and the wreath was stamped into the centre of my gelli design background again using Archival black ink.
These were then coloured using Spectrum Noir pencils.
I cut out the daisies and dragonflies and added glitter sticking it in place with cosmic shimmer flake and glitter glue.
The sentiment was stamped into the middle of the wreath again using Black Archival ink
I used a 7x7 white card base and matted and layered green and then black card these were attached together with cosmic shimmer glue. The design was finally put into place using foam pads  to give dimension.
Lastly I added the dragonflies and cut out daisies which I previously had glittered to my design with cosmic shimmer glue.Sticking just in the centre to allow the wings and petals to be lifted up again for dimension.

 Have a try at recreating this, it was lovely to do, good luck with your entries into the challenge.

 You can see the dimension on the dragonflies in this photo.
