ColourQ #152

This is my second post today.  Click here or scroll down for CASE Study.

The challenge at colourQ this week is to use these colours:

I wanted to keep as much white as possible in the design.  It's my second attempt - in the first attempt I had the sentiment bottom-right and three dragonflies at the top, but it didn't look at all balanced.   I coloured the leaf stamp roughly with Tombow so that it was streaky (deliberate, honest!) then dragged the colour around a little bit with a water brush.  The dragonfly is from the same set at the leaf (Hero Arts CL477 Delicate Leaf Clusters) and the sentiment is Stampers Anonymous Tim Holtz Good Thoughts CMS085.
