Dragonfly Dreams Blushing Bride Card

Here's one of my favorite bundles in the new Stampin'Up! Occasions catalog, the Dragonfly Dreams Bundle. I made this card for a card swap with other demonstrators.  I was inspired by some watercolor cards I saw on Chantal de Kaste's blog.

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.
