POTW For Repeat Impressions - Dragonfly Art

Hi there! Here with another project. When I received this beautiful Dragonfly stamp from Repeat Impressions, I knew I had to make a 3-D project with it. It is a nice size image (about 4" by 2").  I cased a art piece from Pier One Imports.

I have two samples to show you. Click on the photos for a larger view.

Here is how I made the blue one. I stamped the image in Memento "London Fog", colored it with Copic's using BG10, B01 and BV00. Next I covered the  entire image with "Wink Of Stella" GL clear.
After it dried I  fussy cut it out. Next I laid it on a "VersaMark pad, pushing it down for good coverage, then used clear embossing powder , then heat set it.  I used a small wooden block painted black and had my DH drill a small hole in the center. But a small box or vase will do. Bent some floral wire, snipped it the length I needed. Then glued the Dragonfly to the top of wire.

Here is a photo of supplies used for the blue piece.

A closeup image before adding it to the wire.

Supplies used for both:

Floral wire
wire snips
Wooden blocks
Black spray paint

Hope you liked my project and if you give it a try, let me know, I would love to see it.
