Dragonfly Thoughts

Sometimes when you're sitting outside on a summer day, little winged things come to where you are.  Have you ever wondered where they came from and where they're going?  Do they find us strange? Do they check us out to see what we are?  Maybe that's why they come for a visit!

I had previously made the background by using distress inks/gold mist and the cling wrap technique.  I used the inks in a rainbow style layout and then spritzed with gold mist.  Click on the detail pics for a closer look.

I used a snippet of the made card, left over from another project, and stamped this lovely dragonfly in black ink.
