Just for Fun Challenge #24

This week the challenge for Just for Fun calls for the colors olive, cranberry, and yellow. I decided to use the Splash 'n Stick technique from the current Technique Junkies newsletter so I could really play with the colors. the background is glossy black cardstock strips over the yellow card base. I used alcohol inks for the colors on the dragonflies and butterflies as called for in the technique. For the flower I used Creative Inspirations paints over white prima flowers. I wanted the flower to shimmer like the rest of the card.
