A friend asked me to make some sympathy cards for her using these Dragonfly and clock images, as well as these colors. This is what I came up with - I made six. I hope she likes them.
The Dragonfly is embossed with dark copper EP (Moonglow's Midnight Copper Obsidian). The wings are watercolored with the aqua painter and Twinkling H20's (Plum Blossom, Black Cherry & Wild Plum), the body with Chocolate Chip marker scribbled on plastic and then picked up with the aqua painter, and the surrounding square with Certainly Celery reinker. I used my Versamarker on the deckled edges and embossed with regular copper embossing powder.
Copper EP is also used for the clock face and sentiment. I created a circle reverse mask for the clock, masked off the center, and sponged with Certainly Celery. The sentiment was traced with the Certainly Celery marker for more definition. I also sponged the edges with Certainly Celery. All the Enchante designer paper layers are edged with the Perfectly Plum marker.

This is gorgeous. Your friend will love the cards. Wow, your layout is very artistic -- great colors. This is the loveliest card I've seen using this dragonfly stamp. I'm glad your description is thorough so I can try it. Into my favorites it goes!
