frosted winged dragonfly

The MIX-ability challenge this week on SCS is to make something frosty. 
I made frosty wings on my dragonfly. 
This tag started out with white cardstock. 
I ink spray smashed it with blues, greens and browns.
Then when those colors were dry, I did ghosting with my 
new ARTplorations stencil Dragonfly Waltz.

I put the stencil down over the cardstock and sprayed water.
I let the water stand for about 10 seconds and I removed the stencil.
In this close up photo I think you can see the little "ghost" dragonfly.
 I wanted fiber or ribbon to use at the top of the tag. I had this ribbon (left of tag). That matched in color, but was way to wide to use. So I cut it and pulled at the fibers until they all unraveled. I used them. I was really pleased at how it turned out.

Since I started with a whole sheet of white cardstock.
 There was extra to make a second tag.


  1. I love the colors and design elements on your tag.

  2. Oh MariLynn this is amazing - love the fibre treatment, and the overall look of the tags is beautiful.
