I designed this for today's Inspiration Challenge on Splitcoast. It's one ofthosechallenges that either grab you or they don't. Today, I was inspired by the colors of the Country Living room. The first thing that came to mind was this Dragonfly Collage by Rubbernecker Stamp Co.
The glossy cardstock was first sponged with Tim Holtz distress ink/Broken China. Then I used Adirondak Alcohol inks (butterscotch & wild plum) and blending solution to make the polished stone look. The background was stamped on 2-quarter sheets of the glossy polished stone paper using Stazon Jet Black ink. I cut one up and used a black artists pen to make a thin faux black layer around the edges and then layered them on bright green and turquoise CS. They are wrapped in a thin gold thread that is secured on the back with tape. The same technique was used on the domino. The dragonfly highlights were created by using a scratch tool to remove some of the ink and exposing the white core of the glossy paper. You get a thinner line that is more defined than if you do wax resist.
