I started by embossing a matte of Watermelon Wonder using the Petal Burst Embossing Folder. Turning it to the debossed side, I sponged Cherry Cobbler ink all over the matte, concentrating on the edges.
The sentiment, from the now retired Another Thank You stamp set, was stamped using the MISTI to allow it to be stamped first with Basic Black and then with Versamark. It was heat embossed with Clear Stampin' Emboss Powder. After die cutting with an oval from the Stitched Shapes Framelits, it was also sponged with Cherry Cobbler ink.
An scalloped oval from the Layering Ovals Framelits was used to die cut an oval from Basic Black. It was stamped with Versamark and heat embossed with Clear Stampin' Emboss Powder to make it shiny. The sentiment was then adhered to it using liquid adhesive.
The Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits were used to die cut a dragonfly from Basic Black and it was heat embossed like the scalloped oval.
The embossed matte was adhered to a thin Watermelon Wonder matte and then to a Basic Black card base. The dragonfly was adhered to the card front with Glue Dots and the sentiment with Dimensionals. Rhinestones were added for a little bling.
A Whisper White matte was stamped with a dragonfly in Watermelon Wonder and then adhered inside the card to complete it.
Unfortunately, the pictures of this card do not do this card justice. The combination of of Cherry Cobbler and Watermelon Wonder gives a stunning play of light and shadow, enhanced by the shiny black of the dragonfly and embellished sentiment.
