Dragonfly Moon MMSC107
This dragonfly is watching the moon rise over this card. The Sentiment reads "HAPPINESS is when what you THINK, what you SAY, and what you DO are in Harmony---Gandhi. Stamp by SU! Happy Harmony.
The cardstock by Reflections with a piece torn to soften the bottom edge of the moon. The inks used for this moon were used in the following order working from the center to the edges. SU! Summer Sun, Marigold Morning, Pumpkin Pie & Jim Holtz Distress Ink Tea Dye & Wild Honey. Each were blended with Jim Holtz blending tool. The black ink by SU! I cased Zindorf's card at: http://zindorf.blogs.splitcoaststampers.com/2010/05/31/ultimate-sac...
The branches, (stamp by Stampendous Foliate quad cube), at the bottom of the moon were placed using the "masking" technique. The masking was done by placing scotch tape over the patterns on the cube that I did not want to stamp, inked the stamp and carefully removed the ink from the tape. The image was stamped using a Stamp-a-ma-jig for proper placement.
The dragonfly is by Priscillastyles

Swirl glitter i Copper Penny was used to outline the sentiment, then brushed around the edge of the moon. Grass like edging was added under the dragonfly with the card finished off with a black & gold ribbon on the edge.
