Hi there everyone, thanks for stopping by here today at the Artdeco Creations, Couture Creations and Ultimate Crafts blog. 

Today I am sharing a dragonfly card that I have created using the papers, dies and cool embellishments from the new Ultimate Crafts collection called  L'Aquarelle teamed up with Couture Creations Embossing powders and products.

I love the effect of embossing powders, especially the awesome range that Couture Creations have in available.
Did you know that there are over 52 colours and mixes in the range.

I have used the following embossing powders on my card
Couture Creations, Gold Chunky Crystals Embossing Powders C0724966
Couture Creations Cooper Chunky Crystals Embossing powder C0724968
Couture Creations Turquoise Sparkles Embossing powder C0724993

Teamed up with the new release 
Ultimate Crafts L'Aquarelle Papers and dies, in particularly the
ULT157766 Ultimate Crafts L'Aquarelle, Filigree Brass Ornaments

Here is my Dragonfly card.






I love dragonflies and I wanted it to have a 3D look to it and
found this frame which does suit this card perfectly, ready for display. 
Makes a nice gift.








Here is how I created this card,
 I placed the
through my Go Cut & Emboss machine.
Because this die is very intricate using the
C0723818 Couture Creations Quick Release paper in between the card stock and die will ensure that you get a perfectly die cut ready to create with.




The die is perfect for C6 size card stock.
I then cut some of the
ULT157761 Ultimate Crafts L'Aquarelle, 12x12 Paper Pad paper, I used some of the purple & blue watercolour paper for the background.



I then Dabbed my embossing ink pad all over the
and sprinkled the
Couture Creations, Gold Chunky Crystals Embossing Powders C0724966
over the decorative die.




I heated this with a heat gun and the results are amazing. 
I love the feel, texture and colour on the finished embossed die cut.




I also cut a smaller piece and embossed the edges - this will go in the centre of the decorative die.


Placing foam tape under this smaller rectangle - I positioned it in the middle of the ULT157787 Ultimate Crafts L'Aquarelle, Decorative Die, Antiquity Frame.

I cut two of each wing and one body of the dragonfly with black card stock and my Go Cut & Emboss machine.



Using the
Couture Creations Cooper Chunky Crystals Embossing powder C0724968
Couture Creations Turquoise Super Sparkles embossing powder C0724993
and heat gun over the body and wings of dragonfly die.



Attaching the wings with Couture Creations 3D Mounting clear dots, to raise the wings from the middle.







I also attached some
a metal flower from the
