Lots to do – Swirls and Flourishes

I really enjoyed making this, despite wanting to be in the sun – yep, the Sun has got his hat on, hip, hip, hip, hip, hooray! 
The background is alcohol inks on glossy card, with some gold mixative.  The dragonfly (LOVE this Non Sequitur image) was first stamped on the background, masked then I stamped the Hero Arts Art words in Wild Plum ink, followed by the swirls, which are gold embossed.  I coloured the dragonfly a little with Copics and some white pen, then stamped again on Vellum, coloured with Copics (on the back), cut out and attached over the original image.  I used Glitter Glaze on some of the wings and body, which you can’t see here.  ‘Imagine the Possibilities’ from Elusive Images.
