Dragonfly Screen

This large dragonfly is from Stamp Addicts but I have a feeling they only have the smaller size now as I looked for this big one and couldn't find it. Anyhow, I stamped it onto fusible film which has a nice irridescent sheen. I'm not entirely sure how to use fusible film properly as it didn't do too much when I ironed it, maybe I didn't have the iron hot enough, I don't know. It's something I need to experiment with more.

I wanted the dragonfly to look like it was against a Japanese screen so drew lines with a pastel pencil to get a soft look. The base card was done with a rollagraph marble patterned roller stamp and smooched with colorbox brown pigment ink. I love the bronze spiral clips but I can't remember where I got them from.

I like always to think about things to be grateful for, for which there are many, many things in my life. I love this quote

Let us rise up and be thankful, for if we didn't learn a lot today, at least we learned a little, and if we didn't learn a little, at least we didn't get sick, and if we got sick, at least we didn't die; so, let us all be thankful.

Quite so :)

Have a lovely day and thanks for stopping by ...

You are so creative, Liz! I've never heard of fusible film and it does look like the Japanese shoji screen. And how appropriate to have a quote by Buddha!
