Dazzle little dragonfly!

20 Feb

The latest challenge at Just Add Ink is a delightful sketch.

I’ve chosen the dragonfly from the Nature’s Nest stamp set.

He’s so much fun to colour and of course he needed Dazzling Diamond wings!


Cardstock: Naturals Ivory, Night of Navy, Always Artichoke

Dsp: Elegant Soiree

Stamp Set: Nature’s Nest, Asian Artistry

Inkpads: Soft Suede, Early Espresso

Other: Dragonfly coloured with SU Markers (Old Olive, So Saffron, Brilliant Blue) and a Blender Pen; Dazzling Diamonds, Night of Navy Ribbon

The dragonfly’s a timid thing,
He’s very pretty, too;
His lacy wings are clear as glass
And delicate as dew.
I don’t know why the dragonfly
Has such a fearful name.
I never saw a dragon
That was nearly half as tame.
