Caught a bug?

There have been a lot of sick people this winter and I suppose it’s nearly over  (though the deep snow outside doesn’t look like it!). However, there’ll always be a need for a cheer up card for people fallen ill.

I love dragonflies (think a dragonfly is my totem – if not a dormouse!) and this is an attempt to be a bit more light-hearted with them. The sketch has come from Freshly Made Sketches and was surprisingly difficult to achieve, not least because I don’t have a sentiment with the full phrase and needed to mix computer-generated text with letter stamps.  If I find a suitable stamp, I might try again with one-layer.  The same green inked background as in my previous posts… and some bling.
