Butterflies & Dragonflies with MMM

There were some fabulous entries at Make My Monday last week - its great to see the diversity .   Fliss has set a great challenge brief again this week (one of my favourite things) for the last week of the January challenges:-

"Butterflies and/or Dragonflies"
Following the "nature" theme please

My piece for the MMM design team is a simple easel card but you can see the varied interpretation of my fellow DT members HERE!

I have coloured my card using distress inks and adding accents through sequin waste before stamping in sepia and distress inks.  The stamps used are a very old set from Wendi Rhodes and I thought the bull rushes etc suited the dragonfly as these are often found near water.

My dragonfly was also stamped in Versafine Sepia ink and then further stamped onto acetate using Stazon ink.  The back of the wings were then glittered using blue and green stickles.   Simple sentiment added.  I could have added more embellishment but I really wanted the dragonfly to be in a natural scene.
I am entering my card into the following challenge:-

Crafty Catz - "things with wings"
