The courage to imagine - a tag

It is not so often I get English craft magazines in Norway. I often stock up, while I am in the UK. This time, Simply Cards and Papercrafts had some stamps from Indigo Blue - and I suddenly had the "need" for the magazine. 

I have used some of these stamps from Indigo Blue to create a tag as a DT contribution for StampARTic.

The background is an old text patterned paper, coloured with dylusion spray. Then I have sprayed water onto the tag, and added sea salt. This creates pattern in the wet ink, while it is drying. The green band is a lace, coloured with dylusion spray. 

The dragonfly is created by stamping two dragonfly onto clear acetate. Then I coloured the back of the acetate with alcohol ink, and cut out the two dragonflies. They were glued on the top of each other to create the double wing effect. I then added a pipe cleaner to make the dragonfly body.
