New Crafting With Dragonflies Challenge - Get Your Christmas On

It's our last challenge of the year on the Crafting With Dragonflies Challenge Blog and we want to see you 'get your Christmas on'!  All the details are here on the challenge blog.

I'm sharing one of my cards which was featured in last month's Making Cards magazine - it was part of my article called 'Backgrounds on a Budget'.  I made the background for this card using cling film - all the details are in the magazine.

The stamp I've used is from LC Designs - it's not on sale at present.  I stamped it using Versafine ink and added some gems to the corners of the image panel and the middle of the star.

I'd like to enter my card in the following challenges:

Brown Sugar Challenge - 'anything goes'
4 Crafty Chicks - 'no patterned paper'
Craft Your Passion Challenge - 'anything goes'
Word Art Wednesday - 'anything goes'
Through the Craft Room Door - 'anything goes'
Penny Black and More - 'black and white plus one'
Always Use Rubber - 'festival' 


  1. Lovely Christmas card Helen, unfortunately did not get the magazine to see what the cling film technique was but it looks fab. Hugs Jennifer xx

  2. I've never seen a background made using clingfilm before - presumably scrunched and inked? It makes a brilliant background for this bold silhouette stamp. Thanks for joining us at Always Use Rubber
