Dragonfly Tag

Hi Everyone: Talk about last minute!! I actually made the dragonfly right away, then got side tracked by a couple of other projects. When I live in Colorado one of the things I noticed in the summer was the colorful dragonflies. They are turquoise,a shimmering green, with iridescent wings. So I created my version of a colorful dragonfly. Like a lot of you I'm on pinterest a lot; there this artist Jan Hobbins who's art I just love. She did this tag with blue and yellow it caught my eye so I tried to figure out which colors of distress ink she used. I don't think I have it yet! I used salty ocean and mustard seed distress stain on my tag. for the greenery I used Alterations spring greenery die cut with a green paper I had in my stash. Instead of making sand like Tim did on his tag I tried to make moss. I mixed glossy accents, peeled paint distress powder, a little black soot distress glitter, a lot of vintage photo distress glitter, and for the dew effect I used picked fence and walnut stain stickles. to top it off I made a little idea - ology flower, and a idea - ology word band with twine. Hope you like it!
