Something Different


Was having a play around with yet more Dome purchases yesterday. Was quite impressed with myself that I managed to put apetures in my cards using the nesties and they are not badly lined up either!!! Also got a plate of shimmer paint things, a bit like H2O's but another make which I can't remember. Anyway, I painted the dragonflies with these, they are very subtle colours but very glimmery. The dragonfly on the black background is done by stamping the image with versamark and then brushing mica pigment over it and brushing the excess off. Thought it turned out quite well considering!!! Will add sentiments when I decide what to use them for.
