Golden Challenge Card

I created this card using the Winged Masterpiece Stamp of the Month from Close To My Heart. I'm entering the challenge at the Heart 2 Heart Challenge blog which is a challenge site for all things CTMH.

The final card after I added gold sequins:

Isn't it so pretty! I splashed a variety of ink sprays on my craft mat and smudged them onto a piece of heavy weight card stock. Once that dried, I heat embossed the two dragonflies in gold using Versamark ink.

I added a white marker and yellow & pink watercolor pencils on some of the flowers within the wings to highlight them a little more.

Once that was done, I added some black and white splatter all over. I stamped the sentiment with black archival ink onto vellum so it wouldn't hide the beautiful background.

After I took photos of the card, I remembered that I had some gold sequins so I added them (in part to hold the vellum to the card front). The sequins are also from CTMH. I love this set because there's shiny gold and matte gold sequins!
