Spread Your Wings and fly Card

Hello, Today I am using a drawing by Jean Elford a friend in England. She mailed it to me about 9 months ago. I am finally finishing it. Thank you Jean. 

I used a wash of 99% water and 1% ink to add color as a wash with a paint brush on the dragonfly. I did not worry about going out of the lines. Some actually dripped on the paper. I did this 2 times to get a good coat of color. 

Once completely dry. I then went over the outlines with a clear Stardust Gelly Roll Pen. I let this dry overnight as I did not want it to smear when I used my copics or added glitter to it.

 I then colored the water with copics BG000, BG01, BG02, BG05, BG10, BG11, BG13, BG15, BG18.

I added a little color to the body of the dragonfly with Copics BG01, BG05. I also added some to the larger spots on the wings making sure I leave the wash as my lightest color..

I then added Iridescent Glitter by Recollections to the wings.

The verse is my own. Please do not copy it without my permission. Thank you. 

The papers used are by Recollections- teal, dark teal, Georgia Pacific- white.

The card is 5" x 6 1/2".

Thanks for dropping by. Have a happy day! Edwina
