This is the sketch for SC638 ...
Here you can see the iridescent green (courtesy of Perfect Pearls) on the wings a bit better:
It was hard choosing how I wanted to do the wings since I could have used an iridescent embossing powder, mica watercolors, Pearl-ex, or even a clear Wink of Stella or Spectrum Noir sparkle pen. I chose the Perfect Pearls because I love their subtle shine in just the color I wanted, and no fixative was required because I used the Perfect Medium.
A close-up of the dragonfly:
And the inside:
The dragonfly on the card front is actually two glued back-to-back so that you can see the iridescent underside of his wings when they are lifted up for display.

What's next? you ask. (Or am I hearing voices?) To be honest, I'm not really sure. I do need to regroup and finish up an ATC project, then check to see what birthdays and deadlines are sneaking up on me during April. I *might* do an art journal page related to me getting dentures, as there have been quite a few hilarious moments this week after their arrival on Friday. I'm learning how to talk and eat, sometimes together, all over again!
Brilliant new smiles,
