Things with wings and a technique

Hi everyone! Simon Says Stamps Wednesday challenge this week is "things with wings" and here is what I did with it.

Dragonfly die is from Clearly Besotted and the sentiment is from My Favorite Things.

I blended a few distress inks with my new egg smoothie from Creative Expressions. At first it was a bit difficult using the sponge but I kept at it and changed up my paper until I got something I liked.

I created the texture using bubbles from Dawn dish washing liquid. I filled a shallow Rubbermaid dish with water and added the Dawn and swished it around until I got enough bubbles. Then I laid the card on top of the bubbles and this is the result. I did dry it with my heat gun to speed up the process.

Added some clear dew drops to finish off the card.

Adding this to TGIF Challenge - Cut it out, as well.
 That's it for today. Thanks for stopping by.

Hi Laurie, Just saw your comment at another blog, and was able to zip over to see what you've been up to. I LOVE the texture and thanks for the tip with the bubbles. Will definitely be trying this! Your sponging looks perfect and the cloissone look of this pretty dragonfly is so pretty! TFS & Have a good week.

Beautiful card Laurie. I love the stain glass window effect of the dragonfly and he really does look like he's flying in the air. Thanks so much for joining us at TGIF - Chlo x
