Dragonfly thanks

Hi everyone! Today I'm showcasing one of my all time favorite TAC stamps. It's old and I think I might have gotten this one on ebay.

I stamped the fern in Memories Pale Olive chalk ink onto ivory cardstock. The sentiment is stamped and clear heat embossed onto vellum then attached over fern using green brads. Sentiment is from Verve.

The dragonfly is punched out using Martha Stewart's craft punch onto thin chipboard. Using copper alcohol ink I colored the dragonfly to look like one of those steel garden garden sculptures that rust out after a time. Added some sparkle by spritzing on some frost shimmer.

Cardstock is Bazzill green's in textures and smoothies.

Thanks for stopping in and I'd love to know what you think of this card!
