Dragonfly Easel

Hey there 🙂 I’ve got a quick inspiration post for our current challenge at Ching-Chou Kuik Facebook group. Our theme this month is Fall/Fall Colors, and this week, the DT was also challenged to include a bug or insect in the project. Of course, Ching-Chou has a fabulous selection to fit either of these themes at her Etsy shop!!! I used Purple Dragonfly for my card, and colored it up in fall colors with my Copic markers.

I cut the image out with a die that frames it nicely, then set to assembling this easel card, using the current sketch at Cheerful Sketches as an inspiration.

The background paper I’ve had for years, but was perfect for this project, and was complimented so nicely with some warm brown matting. I die cut the dragonfly embellishment out of gold mirror card, then added some gold peel off dragonflies and a strip of gold leaves, also peel off sticker. I carried on the design for the base of the easel. I like how some laugh at the size of my stash…..pointing out that I haven’t used something for ages….like peel off stickers….but I know that they will come in handy at some point….as they have here!!!!

*I didn’t mention that I used gold shimmer pen on the image’s dragonfly wings, because no matter what, you can’t see it in the photo….but you gotta believe me when I say I did!! LOL

I’d like to enter this in the following:
