Created by Hand Dragonfly challenge

This 4x4 I made sometime ago which just happens to fit the bill of dragonflies over at Created by Hand you can see other entries to this challenge over HERE.

I created the background using different coloured inks on shiny card stock (from an out of date calendar page) which for some reason just would not dry and so I used my heat gun which then turned the colours transparent ...don't ask me why I have no idea but I liked the end result...I then inked up my dragonfly stamp in white and randomly stamped away then stamped it again using a lilac stamp placing it over the white DF's.

After adhering the black and white image I recycled a piece of patterned acetate packaging from a gift my daughter received...nothing is safe lol... fastening it with 4 DF brads.

Thanx for looking. Chriss x
