I started by inking a 5" x 7" panel of white cardstock with purple, pink, and orange inks using a foam blending tool.
Once dry, I laid the Dragonfly Wallpaper stencil on top of the panel and applied black embossing paste over top using a plastic palette knife. For a little extra touch, I added black microfine glitter on top of the paste before it dried.
Once completely dry, I trimmed the panel down to 4" x 6" and adhered it to a black matting layer measuring 4.25" x 6.25".
To color the Cattails Chipboard Embellish, I simply added a few coats of ink from a permanent black marker. For a little added dreaminess, I also lightly brushed gold gilding wax over the edges of the piece with my finger.
After adhering the matted background panel to the center of a 5" x 7" white card base, I added the cattail embellishment to the lower left corner with foam adhesive. The sentiment was die cut from some gold and black cardstock and adhered to the lower right corner with liquid glue.
I hope you enjoyed this dreamy summertime sunset card and thanks so much for stopping by today. How do you use the chipboard embellishments in your summer papercraft projects?
