Cst challenge

Hi Everybody,
Happy Thursday to you.
Here is a card I have submitted to our weekly CST challenge.  This week is winged things.

The focal image is a cut out design.  I saved this image ages ago and I am sorry, I have no idea where I got it from, but I do have the design saved.  I printed the dragonfly and then used the template to cut out the black silhouette, being careful to leave the outline in tact.  I used the outline to sponge the background color.  I sponged the brown and then the blue with pigment ink and then added sparklie ep to the wings.  Then I glued the cut out black design over the background, offsetting it just a little.  I added the sentiment (actually, I stamped the sentiment first) and then lined everything up.  I added a few layers of matting and I was done.

If you have any questions or would like the template, please email me.

Hope you are having a great day.

Great technique!
Vanessa LOVES dragonflies...I usually put one on her birthday card!And if she shops with me, she's forever picking them up, in case I need to put it on a card for her!

Love how you did this card! I like the look of the dragonfly like he is so free. Pretty colors, too.
