Hi Folks, here is another sample using the versatile Nature Fragments and Abstract Fragments stamp sets from Chocolate Baroque. I have created a background by covering some watercolour paper with a wash of  Ecoline ink, and adding some salt while it was still wet. Once the background was dry, I brushed away the salt, and randomly stamped the squiggly texture stamp in Salty Ocean Distress Ink across the paper. I added highlights with a white pencil.

I coloured a piece of glossy card with green and brown alcohol inks and then stamped the large and small tree trunk circles several times in archival black ink. I cut these out, and arranged them across the page. I used another texture stamp and some blue green embossing powder to create a pattern across the wings of a die cut dragonfly.The sentiment was taken from the Words of Inspiration stamp set.

Something along these lines might make a great masculine themed card, which is always hard to design.Thanks for stopping by, xx

Another great use of the fragment stamps Judith love the idea of stepping stones on water with the Dragonfly as you rightly say would make a great masculine card.

Quite striking combination of complementary colours - love the idea of the dragonfly flying through woodland with a clear summer sky & the sun shining (sentiment) evoked by the whole design.

Absolutely love that beautiful blue background Judith. It looks like light dappled ripples on water. Imaginative use of the cross sections tree trunks too. Excellent work as always my friend.
