International Art and Soul - Winged Things

This theme was set by Christine and is 'Winged Creatures' so I went for a dragonfly image which I've used for a similar challenge in the past. I'm not keen on flying creatures of any sort, in fact I'm terrified of them so I've gone for one that I rarely see now that I no longer have a garden pond. Do join us at International Art and Soul with your creations.

My card blank is a 7x7 by Craft UK. A bright yellow mat of Hobbycraft card is the base for the pretty mottled paper which is from a Cardmaking and Papercraft pad of paper. I stamped the dragonfly and the sentiment with Memento Ink in Cocoa. The dragonfly stamp and sentiment are both from Visible Image. I coloured the dragonfly with various Gelly Roll Stardust pens before tearing it out and colouring the edges with Distress Inks. I also tore out the sentiment and edged that in a similar fashion. The three gems in the corner are from Craft Box.

I'm entering my card into the following challenges:
Aud Sentiments - Anything Goes + a sentiment
2 Crafty Critter Crazies - Anything Goes with a Critter - does a dragonfly qualify?
Crafts Galore - Anything Goes

Word Art Wednesday - Anything Goes
