I have been lax in my sharing of projects I created for swaps.
I based this one on a sketch and from a make-n-take from OnStage Local event in November.
Panel is colored with the watercolor pencils - Melon Mambo, Old Olive, and Daffodil Delight and then blended with the Blender Pen. I also added a bit of Wink of Stella to the middle of the flowers. One does want a hint of glitter!
Here's a close-up to see the glimmer and coloring. Notice that I'm not completely inside the lines. It's okay!
To get the tonal effect of the dragonfly wings:
- Ink the wing stamp with Pool Party - don't stamp yet.
- Use a sponge dauber and apply Old Olive ink directly to the stamp.
- Now stamp on Whisper White.
I also used some Wink of Stella on the diecut wings. If you want extra glimmer, use the Gold Wink of Stella instead of the Clear. This card, I used the clear on everything.
The thread behind the circles is actually the Melon Mambo Thick Twine. I just unraveled some threads from a piece. Then add some adhesive and smoosh it down on top. It's going to look really ugly until you put the circles on top with dimensionals. Then it looks awesome!
