Marbled panel with dragonfly


Hi everyone,
 I hope you are all well and happy and that the festive season was a good one for you!

Among my Christmas gifts was this marbled background stamp from Serendipity Stamps.
(I've cut the stamped image in half to use in his panel).

I remember marbling my wedding invitations way back in the late 1980's using a tray of water, some turps and small tins of oil paint. It was so much fun!

I stamped the image in silver, clear embossed it and then coloured with distress inks.
The dragonfly was die cut using snippets of silver shimmer paper so I'm visiting the playground at 

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge has an anything goes theme.

Edited to add: I was visiting in blogland and saw that  Serendipity Stamps also has a challenge where the theme is sparkle and shine.(I hope the silver shimmer paper is sparkly enough). You also need to use one of their stamps or dies. (Thanks Darnell :)
Supplies:
 Serendipity Stamps marbled background; Memory Box dragonfly die;
 distress inks; silver shimmer paper; sentiment sticker; bling.

Thanks for visiting,
Cathy x
