I adore the Stamps Happen magnolia, and I think it stands out well here against a plethora of colours. I have also shown the backer, with a small fab dragonfly + beads, from Stamp Addicts.
Anyone else got this magnolia stamp? If so, why not show it off , so we can see how different it can look?

I decided to try an old technique in a new way. I first stamped the dragon image onto heat embossable acetate, using versamark+black stazon and clear embossing powder.
Then I used some mica powders and worked them into the inks with a dry brush. With crumpled tissue, Diamond Glaze and fine glitter, I stuck the dragon piece to the tissue and left to dry. The dry embossing is the bubbles Cuttlebug folder.
On the backer, I did the same image, but used shiny card and painted some of the dragon, in stream ink, to make certain features stand out. Inside is an inner using Joanna Sheen's Oriental Tales CD. The finished result is scaly and sparkly. The card is for a fellow Taiji student, who leaves soon, to join the RAF...
