This is my creation for the folks over at  Artful Times the challenge is of wood or on wood.

I started with some wooden packaging that came with some wooden embellishments. I painted this with blue and purple acrylic paint and when dry added some cream acrylic paint.

I like Dragonflies, and during some research, I found one called Purple Darter, I have some stamps of dragonflies but wanted to make my own design.

I had a strip of balsa wood and cut this up into small squares to simulate the body and painted them.

I attached to the base. Using a piece of blue velum, and some parchment tools, I created the wings. I have never tried parchment craft, really pleased I did as it was great fun.

The letters come from the Tim Holtz alphabet die, the metal embellishment comes from Bo Bunny.

Lastly I added 2 eyes using Cosmic Shimmer coloured pva.
