- I started by inking my glass media mat with various shades distress ink. I sprayed with water and then laid a sheet of watercolor paper on the ink/water. I dried with a heat tool and repeated this process a couple of times.
- After the panel was dry I stenciled and stamped random elements on the panel
- I then heat embossed the dragonfly and sentiment.
I am entering this card in:
The Rainbow \”Blue Breezes\” Challenge
Masculine cards are usually the most difficult for me and I needed one for my brother\’s birthday. I love dragonflys and thought it would be fun to emboss a series across the page in Nuvo Hot Chocolate Embossing powder.
Last summer I won first place in AAA 4th Birthday CAS Challenge and the prize was a generous gift certificate to Visible Image\’s shop. I did not have any of their stamps and I picked out 4 sets including this one called Live in the Moment.
I colored the wings with Copic markers (Y17, YG01, YG03). I then made an accent strip using Altenew Espresso Crisp Dye Ink and mounted it on a Kraft card.
I colored Clover with Copic markers and then added three pearlescent sequins for a little interest and shine.
My card is among the artist cards for Dawn\’s Watercooler Wednesday Feminine Anything Goes Challenge. Come take a peek and play along.

I am trying to stay ahead so I began creating my holiday thank you notes. The idea for this card came to me over several days. I won a challenge this summer and the prize was a gift certificate to Visible Images. I selected several stamp sets and thought it would be fun to do a modern card using some of the circles and spheres that came in the sets. Aqua and red are perfect for this time of year.
I embossed all the images in silver on watercolor paper and used just two watercolor hues. I changed the shades by adding more water to the areas I wanted less intense, so while I had just two colors on my pallet, I had several pools of aqua and red in varying shades to work from. I added a strip of aqua to the edge to accent the colors. I love the shine and shimmer from the silver embossing powder.
I am entering this card in the following challenges:
Color Throwdown #519 Challenge I got my color inspirations from this challenge. I had been pondering aqua and apple green, but when I saw this challenge I knew I wanted to use red and aqua.
Simply Less is More #384 Metallics Challenge I love their metallic prompt!
