Clearly Purple...


This one is for the current sketch challenge on the Penny Black Saturday Challenge blog. I tried to stick to the sketch pretty rigidly, but one of the panels didn't work, so I just left it out. The acetate dragonfly (similar to the butterfly I made for my 50th birthday card in the slideshow above) is a double layer, with two pairs of wings.





Acetate 'card' has been glittered around the edges with transluscent Ixie Dust (that is not a typo! ;o)
Background paper was made using the 'Lace Flower' stamp from Penny Black, firstly using Versamark & clear embossing resist technique, then overstamped in Ultramarine Staz-on. The stamp was also used on the acetate using Cotton White opaque Staz-on.
The vellum panel was Cuttlebugged with the Fantasy Flower embossing folder.
Draonfly stamp is from Elzybells.
Brads and silver thread from stash.
