I was excited when Audrie (aka Girlgeek101) invited me to join her for this week's SCS Inspiration Challenge. This week's inspiration comes from Sharon McCartney Art. I chose this beautiful book to inspire my design:
I loved the colors in the book and the dragonfly. My dragonflies were stamped directly on the DP. I then painted their wings with pearlescent watercolors. The advantage of these watercolors is you can paint them on lightly yet still achieve the pearlescent finish.
Thanks again, Audrie. And thanks so much for taking a closer look - hope you like it :)

So beautiful Barb! Your selection of dp is always spot on! They all compliment each other and the stamping of the dragonflies on the printed one was inspired! They look right at home there and the wings..fabulous!!
