Last Saturday I had my watercolor class and oh my goodness we had so much fun!!  The above card is the first card that we made.  I wanted to teach them how to do the background as this is the easiest thing to learn.  We used Blushing Bride, Pool Party and Wisteria Wonder inks to make the background.  

We then used the Dragonfly Detail Framelits, Layering Oval Framelits and the Stitched Shapes Framelits.  The stamp set, Avant Garden, was used to make the flowers and sentiment.  

I wanted to add a little bit of sparkle on the dragonfly with the clear Wink of Stella.  In the picture below you can see how it just add the right touch.

To make this card you are going to need the following products:

Wisteria Wonder Card Stock #122922

  • cut at 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" score at 4 1/4"
  • cut at 2 3/4" x 3 1/2"

Pool Party Card Stock #131203

  • cut at 2 3/4" x 3 1/2"
  • cut at 2 1/4" x 3 1/4"

Whisper White Card Stock  #100730

  • cut at 2 1/4" x 3 1/4"
  • cut at 4" x 5 1/4"

Watercolor Paper #122959

  • cut at 4" x 5 1/4"

On the dragonfly I only adhered the middle of it so the wings would be loose with the Multi Purpose Glue.  I then popped it up with the Stampin' Dimensionals.

For the flowers and sentiments I found that it was easier if you first cut out the oval and then stamped it.  The Avant Garden stamp set is photopolymer so it is easy to line everything up.  

Thank you for stopping by today and have a terrific Tuesday!

Busy day yesterday so catching up this morning and just wanted to say I love this. The background wash is soft and pretty and makes the dragonfly really stand out! TFS.

This is my favorite card from my class. I was so excited how it turned out. I had so much fun that that's all I want to do is watercolor, especially with our new watercolor pencils.
