Charmaine Flannery - Dragonfly Fairy

 Here is a card I have made using an image from a new artist at Sweet Pea Stamps, Charmaine Flannery.  She has allowed us to use such wonderful images.  For my card I have used her image called "Dragonfly Fairy".  It is available as a digital stamp and a single rubber stamp.

I have coloured the image in with my new Graph'it pens.  I do love these pens especially with the brush nibs on some of my most used colours.  I have inked around the edge with Tim Holtz Festive Berries distress ink.  A friend bought me this for my birthday and I love the richness of this red - gorgeous!!.  The backing papers are from my stash and I have inked around them with Festive Berries distress ink along with a Spellbinders Grande die-cut which a friend cut for me.
I have used my clear Wink of Stella pen and gone over the dragonfly wings.  You can't see the full sparkle in the photograph but it's wonderful.  I still love my Stickles but sometimes it's nice to have just a bit of sparkle and I found that if I did a big area like this with my Sakura Stardust clear pen I would see scratch marks even if I coloured in tiny areas or in circles.  With the Wink of Stella pen you paint on the sparkle with a brush.

I have finished the card off with my Joanna Sheen Signature die of a dragonfly (It comes is a set of three small dies - 2 butterflies and 1 dragonfly for £4.99.  Butterflies are so common as dies but this is the first time I had a seen a dragonfly and had to have it) which I have used my Wink of Stella on top of it for some sparkle, Craftwork Cards die-cut sentiment, gingham ribbon and some gems.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Inspire me Friday - Anything goes
Use it Tuesday - All creatures great and small (my using up stash is some backing papers I was given 1-2 years ago and some gems (I normally tend to use 4 so these 2 lonely gems have been sat around for a year or so)
