It’s been a lot of fun pulling out stamp sets that I haven’t used in a while, but it has also been bittersweet since these great sets are retiring soon, never to be seen again.

Like today’s featured set. Dragonfly Dreams and the coordinating Detailed Dragonfly thinlits.

I created the background by first coloring one of my large acrylic blocks with different colors of the Stampin’ Write Makers. I used Pineapple Punch, Pool Party, Bermuda Bay, and Blueberry Bushel. I, then, spritzed the block with quite a bit of water and allowed the colors to run and blend together a bit on the block before stamping the block on some Shimmery White card stock.

Although, I don’t have any graduations this year myself, I know it is that time of year for those who do, Instead of an actual graduation card, though, I decided to make this one a general ‘congratulations’ card so I could use it for any occasion when someone is starting a new adventure in his or her life.

I loved the way the yellow, blues and greens look behind the silhouette dragonfly thinlits. I think it turned out rather striking, don’t you?
