Colorful Dragonflies

Hello Everyone ~ I played with some Colorful Dragonflies for today.

Well the rain held off and we had a great picnic.  We sat around and did a lot of talking and laughing.  It was good to get to know some new people.

Hand Stamped Sentiments has a sketch challenge today.   

I began with a Very Vanilla card base.  I added a layer of Wood Textures dsp.  Using a piece of Color Theory dsp I added a Very Vanilla ribbon at the top.  This was attached to the card base.  Using a piece of Very Vanilla I cut a stitched oval from the card stock.  The Jar of Love leaves were stamped using Old Olive ink.  This was added to the card base using dimensionals.  I wanted some smaller dragonflies so I used the Detailed Dragonfly thinlit strip of dragonflies and cut out 2 of the dragonflies at the top.  The dragonflies had to be cut from the others they were joined to but it was easy to do.  Using Tombow Mulitpurpose glue I added these to a piece of Very Vanilla card stock and let them dry.  After the glue was dry I cut the dragonflies out so there was a layer of Very Vanilla underneath.  Using the markers I colored in the wings.  My dragonflies were added to my card using dimensionals.  To finish my card I added some of the new glitter dots.  Here is my completed creation.
