It’s a 4.25 x 5.5” card, the dark green panels are cut 1/4” smaller, 1/8” smaller for the orange and cress cross panel, the image panel measures 2.75” x 3”.
Linen is stamped on the olive panel. Ink distressing is done on the image panel and coloring is done with artist brush, water and crayons. The stitches are the real thing and since the designer paper is white core I punch the needle front to back then stitch thru from the back to avoid pulling up the ugly white stuff; it’s then taped down to the back.
I didn’t want to cut more of my designer paper for the bottom border of the image panel so I just used what scrap I had left over for the panel, I like the look!
Easy directions for the layer construction can be found on Card Sketches 128. http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/fo...d.php?t=256952
I did a dragonfly internet search for coloring ideas and this one is named Dragonfly Darner; I feel so smart now!
