Razzle Berry and Pool Party Spectacular Card

I was wishing for summer weather and fun sunglasses when I made this!

I cut 3 pairs of glasses with the My Favorite Things die (On A Whim, Razzle Berry, Basic Black) and glued them together (leaving one layer off the lenses). I dotted a bit of Wink of Stella into the tiny cutouts on the cat eye corners for some shimmer.

Basic Black, Pool Party, ink – VersaFine Onyx Black,  ZIG Wink of Stella clear, die – My Favorite Things, embossing folder Stampin’ Up! (Sizzix).

Shimmery Dragonfly Hello Card

I squeezed in a little time at the craft table in yesterday afternoon…and picked a stamp I had not used in a while.

The dragonfly wings were painted with Pearl Ex (and gum Arabic). The dragonfly body was watercolored.

Here is a close up of the shimmer on the wings:
