Dancing Dragonflies

Good Evening Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

I would like to welcome my new followers and visitors and thank your for visiting and commenting on my creations.  To all of you your comments give me a buzz and after some rather upsetting news I found out earlier this week it is lovely to know that I have such good crafting friends.  I also want to thank my very good crafty friend Kath (aka Mucky Paws) who has been a star and supported me through this.

Today I have had a relaxing me, me day, which meant no crafting apart from making this for the challenge over on Mad Crafters Giggle.  I have used one of Imagination Crafts beautiful decoupage dragonfly stamp.


1. 5 x 5 square scalloped card which I have matted and layered aubergine pearlescent card.
2. I stamped the image on the reverse side of pearlescent white card using my Glue Pad and silver embossing powder.  I coloured the image with Imagination Crafts mica powders.
3. I used PanPastels to colour the outside of the image in pale green
4. To finish off I have added a sentiment and 4 pink pearl gems.

Thank you for your visit Today
Hugs xxxxx
