This was inspired by a card by BadSherry. Background is stamped-off eggplant, then mustard. The dragonfly was done with aquapainter and stamp pad lid, but I decided I wanted it darker, and went over it with olive and eggplant pastels, too. I liked the blending with just the ink, but the darker coloring stands out better. I went over the wings with a light dusting of gold Pearl Ex. The edges were sponged with olive. Dr. Maxey's my clarinet professor (from many years ago now), who is retiring this spring. He's a good instructor and person.
