Week 8 - Craft Barn Alpha Challenge

I failed this week to find a virgin stamp. That doesn't mean that I have now used all my stamps at least once, far from it, I just didn't seem to have something to fit in with my chosen word. So week 8 brings the letter W with the extra stipulation that the artwork must also include circles. If you want to see all the details of this challenge, click on the Craft Barn logo at the right hand side of this page.

I used a piece of card left over from an earlier project that I'd sprayed with Dylusions. I added some dots by spraying water through masks to remove some colour and stamped the images. I cut the dragonfly's wings from acetate, coloured them with alcohol inks and just attached them in the centre .
