Dragonflies in Moonlight



Good morning, everyone!  I hope you had a wonderful 4th of July!  I have some exciting news to share with you today.  As you know, I've been designing for Art Neko on a freelance basis for a couple of years now, and I'm so happy to tell you that Art Neko now has a brand new Design Team.  I've been asked to head up the Design Team as the Coordinator, and we have some wonderful artwork to share with you.  You can see the Artists on the Art Neko Design Team by looking in my sidebar here (you may have to scroll down depending on your monitor).

Art Neko will soon have a brand new website that will be more user friendly, and there will be a blog and a gallery to go with the new website.  It's going to be so exciting!

To kick off our exciting news, I'm sharing this Dragonfly in Moonlight card with you this morning.  I embossed the Dragonfly in Moonlight stamp with gold embossing powder, and then I watercolored the image with my new Gansai Tambi watercolors.  I used the same powder to emboss the Flurry of Dragonflies and the Kanji stamps onto some dark blue cardstock.  I then created a layer of gold embossed cardstock as a mat for my moonlight scene and adhered that to my card base with foam tape.

Please have a look at the work that the Design Team Artists have created by going to their blogs listed in my sidebar.  We will be posting to our blogs every week, so there will be lots of gorgeous eye candy to drool over.  :-)
