Dragonflies again

I love to craft with all kinds of designs and motifs, but my favourite of all is the dragonfly. I must have a couple of dozen different dragonfly stamps, in different shapes and sizes. It's a motif I keep coming back to over and over again.

To make this card, I masked off the two outer thirds of the card and sponged all the colours from a Kaleidacolour "Caribbean sea" separately into the unmasked area. Then I spritzed it with water to blend the colours and create a slightly grungy, textured watery looking background.

When it was dry I removed the masking and stamped three small dragonflies in the central panel with  a small sentiment at the bottom

I'm joining in with Casual Fridays CFC 131 - Three Thirds
