Moroccan Dragonfly

Hello Stampers ~ my share today is a Moroccan Dragonfly.

Yesterday was a busy day.  I had my appointment and then ran my errands.  I was hoping to test drive a 2017 Highlander.  I went to the Toyota dealer in our area and they did not have a Highlander on the lot.  The manager explained that as soon as he gets them in they sell.  I may try and visit the Toyota dealer in North Carolina next week and see if they have one I can test drive.  If not I will work on it when I get back here.

I got some more of the items from the Occasions catalog.  The dragonfly bundle was on my list and in my order a few weeks ago.  I took some time to play with it the other day.  There was a great sketch challenge at Try Stampin' on Tuesday.  I knew it would be perfect for my card today.    

I thought the Moroccan dsp would be perfect to use for the colors in a dragonfly.  I used 2 of the patterns for the horizontal and vertical elements.  To create my dragonfly, I used the thinlits to cut out my dragonfly.  Using the Emerald Envy ink pad and a sponge dauber, I inked up the head of the dragonfly.  Next the Dapper Denim ink and a sponge dauber was used to ink up the body.  To give the wings some color I used the Memento Tuxedo Black ink with a sponge dauber.  When the entire framelit was colored, I used the clear Wink of Stella pen to add lots of sparkle to the image.  Here is my completed card.

Thanks for visiting me today.  I have an appointment today also and then I will be working on my cards for the February workshop and I have a class this evening.  Have a Terrific Tuesday and what do you think of the Moroccan Dragonfly?
