Mount the large dragonfly with an open body image from the Dragonfly Garden Set on Block D. Ink it up with the Memento Pad. Stamp it on one end of the smaller, horizontal white strip leaving room to punch it out.

Use the Dark and Light Blackberry Bliss Stampin' Blends to color in the dragonfly's wings.
Use the Color Lifter Stampin' Blends as needed to remove excess color.
