"Things with Wings"

This was the theme for the ATC swap group to which I belong for the month of March. I overlaid vellum on patterned paper, punched the dragon fly out of metallic gold paper and then vellum. Using flat tipped tweezers and Brilliance inks, I applied the color to both the gold dragon flies and the vellum. After I layered the vellum on top of the gold, I added some glitter to the vellum wings and beads to form the bodies. Krylon edging finished these. I wanted them to be soft and pretty...hopefully I achieved that. Thanks, as always, for looking.
