Dragonfly Tag

A quick tag made after work yesterday (my first day back in after the 'flu bug).  It was a full day, but I still wanted to make some time to craft and relax.  This is my second entry to the Anything Goes - Include Some Lime Green challenge over on Tag Tuesday.
The background was created on a piece of mixed media card using Pixie Powders in Aqua Lagoon, Midnight Blue, Peacock Green and Golden Mint.  Once dry, the piece was added to a #8 manilla tag, trimmed and the hole punched through at the top of the tag.
The large dragonfly (the fancy die from the Dragon Delights set by Spellbinders) was cut from black card and the tiny dragonfly which was one of the dies from the Crafter's Companion Advent calender sent out to Platinum customers in 2016, was cut twice.  As the 2017 advent calendar was waiting for me when I got in from work yesterday, I thought it rather apt to use a die from the previous year's.
The lime green was added by colouring through all the apertures on the wings using a Faber Castell Big Brush marker in Light Green.
Finally, three sentiments from the Small Talk sticker set by Tim Holtz completed the tag.
