Created Byhand Challenge - Dragonflies



This weeks challenge on the Created Byhand blog is dragonflies. I love dragonflies and during the summer I can always go walk around the pond and see plenty of them. Some of Quietfire Design's newest stamps are dragonflies. I used both the small dragonfly and the word "Dragonfly" on this ATC. The background is a technique in the Paper Transformed book where you brayer color onto glossy cardstock, add some perfect pearls that's been mixed with water to form a creamy paint, and spritz it all. I used gold but in the scan is looks very dark rather than shimmery. The dragonflies and word have been accented using the Inkssential white pen.
