Oriental Stamping Art- color Mingle

 The OSA Yahoo group has a monthly color mingle- make a Black and White card + one other color- this month the plus one color is Blue.
 This card is made with Twinkling H2Os using a technique from the Technique Junkies called Angels Breath.  I used a dragonfly sticker and Microfine transparent glitter- then colored it with Copics and cut it outThe foilage and Kanji stamps are by Stonehouse Stamps (plate #3). I added a little white gel pen for dimension on the foilage.

Here is the card I recieved from my Mingle partner Barb I. :
Love the Washi Paper Barb used!

Awesome card, Shelly! You did a great job on the dragon fly. I have only used that technique once since I did it at Joan's last year. Was that a whole year ago already? Beautiful blues. The card you received is pretty too. Have a wonderful week!
