Dancing Dragonflies

I've been having a play with alcohol...inks again!
This time though I have been experimenting with simple keeping things a little more simple.


The white cardstock underneath has some basic inking around the edges with some fern leaves randomly stamped around the edge.
Then on acetate I have dragonflies (on one side), stamped with Stayzon Ink,
and then alcohol inks on the other side...I used the solution to wipe away the colour from the dragonflies so that they stood out a little more.

Enjoy!

I am entering this card in the following challenges ~
