Butterflies and dragonflies at The Stamp Man

Hi there everyone,
I hope you are having a good time today. It's time for a new challenge at The Stamp Man where our newest member of the talented DT, Angela is hosting
We are looking for your projects incorporating butterflies and/or dragonflies.

Here is my offering
I started out by stamping a piece of white card with the Stone Relief border stamp in various distress inks, firstly from top to bottom then adding a different colour and going the opposite direction. This stamp makes a really great background. I cut a piece of clear acetate to size and stamped the dragonflies in brown Stazon onto it. I attached it to the background with some glossy accents (behind the place where the top piece was to be added)

To do the top I stamped the stone relief border in brown stazon and inked with distress inks
I made relief tiles using some old scrabble tiles, embossing with Moonglow embossing powders in teal obsidian, stamping the lace stamp from Tim Holtz purely random stamp set and edging with gold paint.
Hope you enjoy it and have a wonderful day.
