The dragonfly is from the ever Wonderful Wings set. DD Ferns in background, embossed. Bug stamped in brown fluid chalk and painted on back with crystal effects/pearl ex copper-but only on middle of body and wings! Crystal Effects a convenient also acts as the glue to a stamped background (non-SU/real old)on Pretty in Pink and mat is Close to Cocoa CS. The background is sprayed with Moon Shadow Spray - iridescent fine spray that is heavenly. And DD Ferns are embossed with duo/color EP's that shift color when you move card (so does the bug which appears trapped below the acetate and the paper. Thank you PrincessInk for idea of simply rimming edge of card with a Painty pen (used copper). Added gold cord and a polyshrink dragonfly on to purchased clip. Purchased plastic "happy".
I sure wish you could see the iridescence. Sure wish I could spell iridescence. Doesn't it drive you crazy that pictures and scans of your card never look like the real thing? Argghhh.

I LOVE this card! Copper metallic is one of my faves. Your scanned image came out looking great - in real life it must be incredible! Wow! I'd like to CASE this but have no idea where to find Moon Glow Spray and the dual color EP - could you please point me in right direction? Thanks for sharing!
