Dragonfly Dreams

Midsummer Dragonflies

Hi everyone, the card I'd like to share with you all today was made using 
a beautiful stamp from Norma J Burnell which will be one of the many brand
 new stamps that will soon be available to buy from 

To make this card I've used the following
6x6 card, Blush coloured card, whimsy corner die, printable acetate, 
glossy accents, white liquid pearls and EK success punch
I've also used Craftwork cards Vintage Flora Design Papers which are breathtakingly 
beautiful and are also available from Sribble and Scrap Craft Shop too

To colour this beautiful image I've used my pro/Flexmarkers in the following colours 
Skin ~ Coral, Dusky Pink, Blush, Almond & Tea Rose
Hair ~ Satin, Tan, Tawny Owl & Shale
Blooms ~ Sand Dune, Budding Rose, Putty, Pineapple Crush, Honeycomb, 
Terracotta, Marsh Green & Pear Green
Dragonflies ~ Starfish,Honeycomb & Terracotta

After colouring up the image I then copied it onto Printable acetate, I 
then cut out the dragonflies and layered them onto the coloured up image. 
I also added glossy accents to her lips and eyes too and white liquid pearls 
to the border I cut using the EK Success punch.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges
