The Dragonfly Part Deux

Here is my second card using 
"The Dragonfly" from Sweet Pea Stamps. 

I used Vintage Sepia Versamark ink, stamped onto
Paper Trey Ink Rustic White card stock.
It seems like my cards are much more subtle
overall, when I use the brown inks to stamp with.

Another $$ Store rosette from the wedding aisle.
I just tipped the edges lightly with a RV09 Copic and
added some alcohol for the color to blend itself nicely.

I used the Fleur de Lis pendants from Spellbinders
and layered them to resemble a fleur behind the image.
I probably should have used more, but I will another day.
I also used a MS punch on the corners and added a second 
punch behind them in a contrasting glittered green card stock.

Okay, my son is away at camp for the next three days for
school, and I am going to make the most of my un-mommy
time and try and get more stamped images colored and made into
glorious works of art.
So far I'm three for three. 


  1. WOW this is beautiful. I didn't think it was possible but your cards just keep spinning my head like linda blair each time I have come on here. I love the grey and pink together. x

  2. this is just exquisite!!!!!! Gorgeous coloring and the papers and embellies are fab! xxD

  3. This is so gorgeous. I love the colors you used and that you stamped ii in brown ink. Love the flower. I am always using my copics to color things to make it match.
    Waht is going on with our Simply Betty group? Has she changed our group and I just don't know it? I am soo freakin at a loss.

  4. Oh such a beautiful card, gorgeous colours and the image is so pretty
    love tasha xx

  5. Both versions are gorgeous in their own way. This beauty, so vintage looking and subtle, steals the show, me thinks

  6. Simply GORGEOUS!!!
