Dragon fly card


I was finding it difficult to come up with new ideas for some cards and even after flicking through some old magazines and books I still couldn’t come up with any thing.  But I then started to look back at some previous cards I have made I got an idea from 2 previous designs that I joined together.  This is made using the watercolour technique and stamps where you ink up your stamp and spritz the stamp with water before stamping onto water colour paper.

Inks:  Adirondack Wild plum, Red pepper, Terra cotta, Stream, Lettuce, and Oregano

Card:  water colour paper, old olive card, ivory card

Stamps:  Clarity stamps Dandelion heads, Satampin up Pocket silhouettes, unknown dragonfly stamp, Papertrey ink Out on a limb sentiments

Other:  Stampin up hardware, Tiny mosaic Cranberry, East of India ribbon

Water colour dragonfly


I made this card a few days ago for a friend’s birthday using the water colour technique on Tim Holtz blog September 2008 technique challenge

Inks: Adirondack; red pepper, bottle, lettuce, oregano, stream, stonewashed, terra cotta and wild plum, and Archival coffee for the quote
Stamps: Lavinia stamps dandelion, Stampin up Pocket silhouettes and a free dragonfly stamp from craft stamper (I think)
Cards stock: old olive, plain white and scraps of brown paper
The scrap of paper and a beige brad have been coated in embossing ink and distress powder to give a nice texture to the embellishment..
