Dragonfly ATC's

I joined a monthly 1-4-1 ATC swap with the Oriental Stamp Art Yahoo group.  The theme for March was dragonflies:
 I used Distress ink or the background, added Kanji in Grey, Stamped and embossed the dragonflies and painted in the centers with Inka Gold. The Gold Iridescent EP for the top dragonfly is accented with a gold strip under the dry embossed floral strip. The Stamps are from About Art Accents.

 Here is the ATC I recieved from Peg K:

 I am hoping to get some stamping time in this week.  We are looking forward to a fun weekend with a Cubs game next Saturday : )
 
Thanks for stopping by!

I'm with Beth - got some Inka, have not used it. You are good for me, wanting to use unused stamps and products you haven't used in a while. Beautiful Asian art! xoxo
