Dragonfly ART

Been having some fun with my Krafty Lady moulds and Delight air dry clay just lately ( thanks France for the inspiration )
The dragonfly is Stampers Annon.I ran the delight through the pasta machine , dusted the stamp with my antistatic pad,then stamped the image into the Delight.Let dry for 24 hours, then painted black with black gesso.Ive then rubbed with metallic rub-ons, then dusted the dragonfly with blue/green shimmer powder.
The glare on the pic ( shoddy camera work, sorry ) hasn't picked up these colours.Ive then rubbed the image with antique gold rub and buff.The letters are done using the same method.Love these little letter tiles, but I have just used the inner part of the letter mold.Excellent to get different looks for your letters.
Emboss the background with ranger distressable embossing powder and added some eyelets with the very cool crop-o-dile.
Heaps of fun ( yes little piles of fun everywhere on my craft desk )
If I tidy it I wont know where anything is ! 'VBG'

Dawnie - this is a great ATC! And I think the photo is very clear.
You always amaze me with the different techniques you use. A pasta machine (wow!). And those Krafty Lady molds are fantastic.

Love the idea of heaps of little piles of fun on your desk (I have 'mountains' on mine he he)..
