A BIG thank you

I would like to thank everyone who came to see me at The Craft Barn special weekend. It was lovely to see so many of you and to hear all your wonderful comments, which were much appreciated! 

Also a BIG thank you for all the very nice comments being left on my blog and for visiting. Hope lots of you will keep coming back!

I thought I would share one of the cards on display on my demo table as a reminder of this special weekend.
I have used Black Peel Off's: A large dragonfly and two small blooms. 
The dragonfly itself is coloured in using Sakura Gelly Roll Glaze pens. While the colour was still wet I sprinkled some really fine holographic glitter over the surface.
The circles or bubbles have been coloured in using a mix of other Sakura pens: Stardust, Metallic and Souffle.
I've added Gems, Metals and some of the Peel Off's extra bubbles and waste dots. I coloured two gold Metals black for the eyes on the dragonfly.

A useful tip when using this large dragonfly Peel Off's:
1. Lift the Dragonfly carefully off the backing sheet and place it sticky side up on your work surface.
2. Take your card and hold the edge against the table at a 45 degree angle next to the dragonfly. Slowly bring the card down to lie on top of the dragonfly. Press gently to make the dragonfly stick to the card.
3. Now the dragonfly is on the card you can trim it down to size. If you are using a Nestabilty you can place it on the card, centre the dragonfly, hold it down with some tape so it does not move when going through the machine. 
So much easier than trying to place directly on the circle!!!

Come back to see a variation tomorrow....
