Dragonfly Wishes

Hi!  Today I have another Dragonfly Card to share with you that also features the Inside The Lines Designer Series Paper you can earn FREE with a minimum $50 (US) purchase prior to S/H and tax.

This is one of the cards we did at Friday night’s Sale-A-Bration class.  This was a FREE class for those who placed a minimum $50 purchase with me during January.  The flowers were colored using the new Watercolor Pencils and a Blender pen. I like the idea of coloring only a few of the flowers – but I may go back and add a little more color to the top right block.   To get the block look, here are my measurements:

  1. Cut Designer Series Paper in a 3 1/2 x 3 1/2″ square.
  2. Cut a 2″ strip.  Then cut this strip at 2″ – that gives you a 2″ square (in the upper right) and a 1 1/2 x 2″ rectangle (lower right).
  3. Cut the 1 1/2″ strip at 1″.  This gives a 1 1/2 x 1″ rectangle (top left and a 1 1/2″ x 2 1/2″ rectangle (lower left).

These pieces are then adhered to a 3 3/4″ x 3 3/4″ black piece of card stock.

For the dragonfly, we sponged Melon Mambo, Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie and Bermuda Bay (I know you can’t see that color in the dragonfly – it is covered by the black detail in his body) on a scrap piece of Whisper White card stock before die cutting.  It was fun to see how everyone sponged their colors – everyone had a little different dragonfly.

The sentiment is stamped in Bermuda Bay ink and is from the Avant Garden Sale-A-Bration set.

I hope you enjoyed today’s creation.  If you have the Inside the Lines Designer Series Paper – how have you used it?

Thanks for stopping by!
