Well, I should be able to post the birthday cards I was working on, tomorrow - they're in the post! In the meantime, I had a piece of metal left over that I'd used Lin's "controlled squish" on (have you seen the TSS video from last week starring Lin of LB Crafts? If not, check it out, it's great) and attached it to an arch chip. Actually, this was going to be something completely different, but I had the stamp upside down so needed to cover the bottom of the arch.
I added some terra which I stamped into (paperartsy) and sprayed with some perfect pearl/DI reinker, ferro (iron) and found this little dragonfly from a box of stash. I coloured it first with Trad Tan paint (I think I use this nearly as much as Hels... no, that can't be right, I'm still on my first bottle) before sponging on some versamark ink called pumpkin spice and stamping Wendy's splatter stamp in walnut stain DI. I also sprayed it with the perfect pearls mix as dragonflies are so shimmery. Then I wrapped some fine copper wire round the body.
I stamped the phrase on a piece of scrap paper and sponged it lightly in the pumpkin spice ink, and added a Prima collage flower that many many months ago I'd covered in distress stickles, and filled the centre with tiny beads (Suze W).
