Inside the Lines (or maybe Outside the Lines)

Hi All!

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!
