Good Saturday morning.  I trust you have had a great start to your weekend.  I have had lots of fun playing with some of my new Impression Obsession dies.  My project today uses Cattails, Tall Grass and Grass Border.

I started by cutting out all the dies using white cardstock, colored them with Copic markers and lightly formed them using my stylus and molding pad from the accessory tool kit.

I sponged in the water and sky background on white cardstock using my color box stylus and foam tip.  I cut the frame using my matting basics B.  I ran ATG adhesive on the bottom backside of the frame and attached the grass border and cattails. I attached the tall grass with ATG adhesive on the card base. I then lined the frame with strips of mounting tape and attached it over the scene.  By attaching the cattails and grass border to the frame before I attached the mounting tape I created a little separation between them and the tall grass which helped create more dimension.

I attached the dragonflies with glossy accents and  mini rolled glue dots.  Here’s a closer view.

I think this would be a perfect masculine card.  I love how the water peeks out in the background.
