Asian Dragonfly Recycled Slide Mount

By Chris / CS Designs

Asian Dragonfly Recycled Slide Mount

I have never been a pink person, but lately I seem to be creating more pieces in this color. I think it is because of the softness it adds to a piece. The main focal point for this Altered Slide Mount is my Asian Geisha Montage 1 digital stamp design. She has been colored with Prismacolored Pencils, using Odorless Turpentine blended with Paper Stumps. The Slide Mount has been cover with Pink Cardstock on which I have printed my How Do I love Thee digital stamp. The edges of the slide mount have  fine inking of pigment ink to give the front a little more dimension.

To add some depth as well as a little bling I added a Wire and Beaded Dragon Fly I created about 5 years ago. I have ton of these sitting in a tackle box, now that I have more time to play with my own designs, I am also enjoying using some of the things I never had time to use before.  The pink rhinestones are also something I have had for a while.

Materials Used:
Asian Geisha Montage digital stamp / CS Designs
How Do I love Thee, digital stamp background / CS Designs
Wire Beaded Dragonfly
Prismacolor Pencils, Odorless Turpentine, Paper Stumps
Pink Wire, Assorted Beads and Pink Rhinestones
