Garden Dwellers - pretty dragonfly

Hi it's lunch time on a Thursday and that can only mean one thing - Ok 2 one I'm hungry and need to feed myself but the main thing is it's New release day over at Julia Spiri!!
Wow she has some gorgeous characters for you today -The Garden Dwellers -you can find all of the out in the yard!!!
As we live near a lake we get lots of dragonflies buzzing around our yard so guess who I have colored up!

OK I know the female dragonfly hasn't got the pretty colors that the male has but hey this is fantasy land!!!

I have colored her with my Spectrum Noir makers and Derwent Metallic pencils to give her the shine you see on them as they buzz around the yard.

I have then added Clear Wink of Stella to her wings for a bit of extra sparkle!

I used a blue pearl card blank which I matted with an iridescent mirror card overlayed with a sheet of acetate which has been glitter embossed with butterflies and leaves.  

I used a flower corner punch on my image and matted this onto the same pearl card I made the blank from. and angled this on my card. 

Some blue sheer ribbon and a dragonfly charm just finished the cute look I was trying to achieve.

Dragonfly and her friends are available now over at Julia's Etsy Store along with all of Julia's fab designs so why not add them to your collection and join our challenge with them.

Pop over to Julia's Facebook group for more inspiration by the rest of the Design Team and to see the other newly released stamps from the collection.
