After seeing Chantal's blog post, watercolor workshop 2.0, with all the fun designs using watercolor, I came up with mine using Stampin'Up! watercolor paper, Blushing Bride and Whisper White card stocks.
I created the effect using Aqua Painters with Blushing Bride ink. Let it dry before putting together the layers of the card. Then I spattered the cards with Gold Winks of Stella Glitter Pen.
I had a bit of a problem with my Winks of Stella, it started leaking, so it makes it hard to paint the area I want. Looking on the bright side, it works great for spatter! So I spattered in a diagonal across each card front. Just so you know I actually love my glitter pens! My clear glitter works great, I'm on the second one (I use it a lot!). But I messed up my gold, so I'm just finding other ways to use it to keep getting that great gold color on things.
I made 11 fun cards for this swap. That's one of the things I love about being a Stampin'Up! demonstrator is having stamping friends to share ideas. I'm so glad I decided to join 10 years ago. Have you ever thought of joining? Right now is a great time, the starter kit is only $99, plus during SAB you can pick 2 additional stamp sets. That's a huge value.
I used the Detailed Dragonfly dies for the 2 layers of the dragonfly on the front of the card. And used some pretty pearls as an accent. The Fine-tip Glue Pen worked great to glue the dragonfly layers together and to the watercolor paper.
