Shimmery Dragonfly Hello Card

I squeezed in a little time at the craft table in yesterday afternoon…and picked a stamp I had not used in a while.

The dragonfly wings were painted with Pearl Ex (and gum Arabic). The dragonfly body was watercolored.

Here is a close up of the shimmer on the wings:

This card is part of a collection that I am working on for someone. I am ALMOST done the collection, but I keep getting sidetracked. I really need to power through and get it done.

Kitchen remodel begins today. I spent part of the weekend packing up everything currently in the kitchen and moving it to the basement. REALLY tired. I am curious to see the new kitchen come together.
