Tried a couple of different techniques on this one.
Did faux mother of pearl on the dragon fly bit. First time I tried this. Easy & cool - my favorite combination. I watercolored his body first. Colored it with marker then pulled some of the purple into the wings with an aqua painter, then went over it with WWC(navy) and the aqua painter. IRL gives it a gossamer/see though look.
Also saw an idea in the catalog for glitter brads - use a mini glue dot on top of the brad then dip in glitter. kinda like a little disco ball.
i used the new distressing tool kit keyring thing to distress the edges. that is sweet! works like a charm (much easier than finger nails and less risk of shredding the paper like i do with my scissors.
also tried a new color combo - blush blossom and cool carribean.
Thanks for looking. Let me know what you think.
