Dragonflys in flight...

Happy Monday,

I wanted to share this card today which is based on a fabulous card I received from the lovely Sheila in Wolverhampton after a demo I did there a few weeks ago.  I received the card in the post and it is just stunning, this is my homage to the original!

I started by making the stamped piece using the square media plate, the waves mask and blue and pink pigment inks.  I added the beautiful circle
stamp over the top stamping it repeatedly ( using my press to impress makes this so easy) using the blue and pink pigment pads.  I then stamped the dragonflies over the top and shaded through the waves make using a mix of both colours.  This really was an experiment I will try to film a quick video on this for those who miss the demo
