This cute dragonfly from our sponsors 'Limited Runs' caught my eye because I wanted to make a child's birthday card this fortnight. The base card is 8" x 8" over-layed with some scrunched up Tim Holtz tissue wrap and retro grunge paper. The paper was torn and then distressed with fired brick distress ink. I made a little ATC for the bottom R/H corner using liquid applique for the body, distress markers to colour the wings and sticky gems for added bling. The big dragonfly has a button body but the same treatment for it's wings. Both have tiny, tiny sticky gems as eyes. The birthday greeting is re-cycled from a card I received for my birthday. The last little embellishment is a metal dragonfly brad.
Pop over to our blog here and see what our design team have made for this fortnights challenge. Why not join in, it's fun.
