I didn't really do step by step instructions this time because it was taking up all of my brain function to just think of how this was going to go. I had a bunch of snags and re-dos on it. I used one of my favorite stamp sets for the Dragonfly from Tim Holtz, it's one of the Classic sets he brought back this year and I just love it!!

I am going to enter it into the new
Challenge this week. The new challenge is "For the Love of Sparkle." I used my sparkle on the purple portion of the flowers inside the box. I actually covered those with Tim Holtz Brushed Pewter distress stain and then wiped them a little bit so they weren't silver but just sparkly (that stuff really sparkles) I also used the gold shimmer goodness on the outside around the edges. I also used brushed pewter on the underside of the wings (those were made out of Wendy Vecchi's Clearly For Art) so the shimmer would show on the outside of them.
The paper underneath the dragonfly was brushed onto with some of Tim's Tarnished Brass Distress stain to add a touch of shimmer. The shimmer on this project is hard to see in the pics but it really looks nice in person and it's not too much, just a little sparkle goes a long way.
