Dragonfly Fairy

If, like me, you're a fan of Sweet Pea Stamps, you'll have seen that a couple of fabulous new artists have been added to the ranks of Sweet Pea Stamps designers recently. One of these is the very talented Charmaine Flannery and I couldn't wait to get creating with her gorgeous images.
The first one I chose to work with was this stunning Dragonfly Fairy digi stamp:
I coloured the image with my Prismacolor pencils.
I feel like I'm getting better and better at using these pencils and am starting to get a bit more adventurous in using and blending colours. I added some blue low lights to her hair in this image and am really pleased with the result.
I also added some Stickles to the dragonfly wings and a layer of Glossy Accents to give a real sheen to them:
For my card I coloured cardstock using Tim Holtz's marbled stains technique and inked the edges with black Archival ink. I teamed the inked cardstock with delicate shapes die-cut from black cardstock....
....and some pretty little flowers, with black Stickles centres.
This image is available in digi or red rubber format from the Sweet Pea Stamps store.
