I have tons of scrap cardboard laying around so i thought i'd use some of it for this project.
I took a 4''x4'' square and distressed it...alot! I gave it a watered down coat of acrylic paint, stamped it with a 'crafty individuals' dragonfly stamp and added another set of wings stamped on vellum. I added lots of bits and bobs i had laying around... all salvaged or scraps from other projects... and finally i stamped a larger dragonfly... i think its from stamp addicts... correct me if i'm wrong!!!... on to vellum, painted its body and tail with silver ink and added glass beads them attached it to the 'card' with silicon so it looks as if its just landed.
Below are some close ups of the dragonflies.
Thank you for taking the time to come and look.
made a set of atcs in a folder.
They have been stamped on the racing pages of grandads saturday paper.
I coloured them very sparingly with pencils so you can read the 'paper'
through them. If anyone wants to swap this set, please let me know, its not ear-marked for anyone yet.
The old bus and old fashioned bobby are a close up of the front of the wallet.
Thanks for taking time to look, love lynx

uncomfortable.My twins had their birthday party sunday, and
it was their 4th birthday yesterday (monday).
This is my entry in the 'Corrosive challenge' this week... 'lets fold it'.
Its made from one sheet of 12x12 card, divided into 9 x4inch squares and the 4 corner ones cut away.
I've stamped and embossed mostly but i've also used stickers, peel offs, ribbon, beads....
I really like making these cards... they really look impressive in real life.
Thanks for taking time to look. xxx

This is my 1st 'charmed cards, dotties world challenge' and my 1st ever go with a digi-stamp.... found it rather strange not geting inky fingers!!!!
The challenge is 'holey'... so i ripped a hole in the front of my card and cut
'mikey' out and mounted him in front of the tattered hole so he looks as if hes ridden though... the papers are DCWV and mikey's coloured with pro markers.
Thanks for taking time to look. xxx blackdragon xxx
