Sprays/Eggshells/Dragons and Bees

Hi and would like to welcome my new follower Maryanne-check out her Digi images at Createful Heart Digis.My project today started as waste packing from grandaughters new game and I decided to use it as a stencil to spray through on a journal page but liked the result and found my Woodware circle punch was just the right size to fit into the holes-lightbulb moment lol.I used Decoart sprays,Decoart black acrylic on bubble wrap,I matted onto black card,I stamped onto all the punched circles using Chocolate Baroque Bee,stamps from Crafters Companion/Crafty Individuals and Polka Doodle-the silver embossed Dragon was a craft show freebie and the top centre is crushed eggshell glued down and covered with Cosmic Shimmer gilding polish.
