Dragonflies by Ching Chou Kuik

Sweet Pea Stamps

Hello folks, here I am again with another creation for  Sweet Pea Stamps.  This week I am using the digi Dragonflies by Ching Chou Kuik.

I rather fancied something a little different this week saying as I have used a lot of lace recently that is one item that was going to be avoided :)  Instead I designed a dragonfly border to be cut with my die cutter.
Next I air brushed it with a green Promarker and used embossing powder sprinkled on top fairly lightly, just to give some texture.
 And here is the completed frame.
 Next I tried using oil pastels for the white area behind the digi which will be coloured with Promarmers.  I am wanting to try the new Spectrum Noir pastel crayons when they come out which are oil based so thought it was a good way to start experimenting.
 Next I coloured the digi with Promarkers.
 Got to have a bit of bling so I added Stickles to the centres of the flowers and sections of the dragonfly wings.
Out with a new die ( I bought it last year but have not used it till now), Elizabeth Craft Designs dragonfly.  The bodies were cut using the same card as I used for the card base and the wings out of a clear overhead projector sheet.  I then sprayed ares of the wings with my Purple Promarker.  Later, when I laid them on the card they needed more colour so I sprayed the back of the wings with Orange Promarker.

 I cut a simple frame to go behind the digi which I airbrushed with Green, Spice and Metallic Gold Promarkers.  I only wanted a hit of a shaped edge, more as an accent really than being to obvious. Time to assemble and here we have the finished card.
