So happy that Dragonfly Dreams is in the new Annual Catalogue. Today’s card uses a watercolor technique shared by Cindee Wilkinson.
The card base is Tangerine Tango cut 4 1/4″ x 11″ and scored at 5 1/2″. Cut the watercolor paper to 3″ x 4″. Spritz the paper with water and then use a clear block to pick up the ink directly from the ink pad. Apply the ink from the block onto the paper and repeat this using various colors. For this card, I used Daffodil Delight, Rich Razzleberry and Tangerine Tango.
As the paper is wet, the ink will spread out when you apply it with the block. Repeat as often as you want to get the coverage you are pleased with and spritz the paper again if you want to spread the ink around. This will take a few minutes to dry or you can use your heat tool to speed up the drying process.
This watercolor piece is layered onto a piece of Rich Razzleberry cut 3 1/8″ x 4 1/8″. Adhere it to the card front with dimensionals. I rolled the dragonfly using the framelit on Rich Razzleberry card stock. Trim down the edges of the dimensional sheet to attach to the spine of the dragonfly and adhere to the watercolored piece. I washed the dragonfly with Wink of Stella which gives it a slight sheen. Add some rhinestones and stamp the sentiment using Black Archival ink and your card is done!
Thanks for stopping by and have a stamping good day!
