Dragonfly Dreams

I hope you are all enjoying your Easter break and not eating too many eggs?

In order to keep away from the Chocolate this weekend, I have been busy creating my latest Polkadoodles Inky Pinkys DT inspiration.

I have used the beautiful 'Octavia Moonfly Dragonfly', I coloured this one up previously, but wasn't too happy with the results, I am pleased to say I am much happier this time around.

I have used all sorts of coloruring mediums to bring this little beauty to life.

I colored the whole image with Copics, then went in and added to this.

Glitter Gel pens on the Dragonfly body, Prismacolor Pencils to add different colours to the base coat of blue in her hair, then finally a couple of coats to the wings with a Spectrum Noir sparkle pen, hopefully you can see all the sparkle below, I have lightened the image to help it show up.

For the background I stippled with Stream and Purple Twilight Adirondack inks, then dotted around some White Opal liquid pearls.

Once it was all dry I double mounted on Papermill card, added a sentiment from LOTV and a couple of punched butterflies, which are dotted with a Silver Graph-it Shake pen.

Thanks for looking, hope to see you over at the  Inky Pinkys Facebook page.
