Mark's Finest Papers & Stamps Oriental Sketch Challenge #3

Welcome to Mark's Finest Papers and Stamps Oriental Sketch Challenge #3.  The challenge uses this sketch:

For my card, I used the MFP Dragonflies stamp set.  Lifestyle Crafts Woven Embossing Folder was used for the background; one of the panels was embossed with an Oriental embossing folder.  To give the dragonflies "flight" I stamped two dragonflies on vellum and cut the wings out, colored them using Copic markers and paper pieced them over the stamped dragonfly images.  Memento Black ink was used for stamping the images and sentiment.  Cardstock used is vanilla, black, and River Rock.  River Rock ink was also used to ink the Oriental image and edges of the layered panels.

We hope you will play along with us!  The Oriental Sketch challenge can be found here.
