Friends of Speedy TV

Happy Monday you all.
I thought I would share a pic of a dragonfly. Friday evening
I went outside shortly after sundown and saw this dragonfly.
The light was low so couldnt get it any clearer.
 It landed on a rusty hanger and I thought it 
was interesting that its colors were the same.
So simple, it is using Chipboard. I have used one of  

 Marks Finest Papers a Heinrich Co's new sets. Buried Treasures 
 has a great variety of sentiments and fun images. After
 water coloring the images I cut out the parrot with
 a Spellbinder Label# 8 and did some rough
 shading around it. The map was cut out and
 darkened all around the edges.

  I thought these were the perfect dps for this project. It is
 from Lost & Found which I won at CR84FN Color Challenge.
 I painted my chipboard hinges and skull & crossbone  pieces
 from Tim Holtz. Thought the skull needed a little skullcap
 made from fabric.The dps were stitched on and the card
front cut short to reveal part of the inside. The sentiment
 was stamped, cut apart and  added. 

  On the inside I added the map and an old key.
This cute little pirate set it has lots of 
possibilities and my message in this card is that 
each of us has a treasure with in! 
 It is up to us to discover and develop that!

Winner will receive this Stamp Set
