Dragonfly Dreams with Aqua Painters and Watercolor pencils

Dragonfly Dreams is a versatile new set, so pretty.  

I created some notecards, some in crumb cake and some in whisper white (do you have a preference)?  I think the white.. but like them both

I love both the big dragonfly and the set of flying small dragonflies.

For each of these cards I first used the watercolor pencils, just scribbled on the shimmer paper, then with my aqua painter blended the color and then for the other cards squeezed the ink into the lid and dipped in the aqua painter.

The dragonfly on the left is aquapainter and inks and on the right is the pencils, with water (you can just see the lines).    For the left dragonfly I added some of the gold thread (copper would be pretty too!).

My background color is wild wasabi.  And my dragonflies are in Wild  Wasabi as well.  
Notecards 7 x 10 folded
Shimmer paper 3 x 4 1/2, Wild Wasabi 3 1/4 x 4 3/4

Here are  the flying dragonflies.

I colored the paper with deeper color, let it dry and then cut out the dragonflies.  The set includes the stamp for the cute dots.  I found that stamping off (so it's a light shade) looked better as the dragonflies stood out more.  

The greetings are from the same set - but the "celebrate" is from Beautiful You.

My friend Barbie hosted a party to make these cards and loves green (so the Wild Wasabi choice) and she had her group make the matching pouch.  I posted the instructions on how to make this pouch earlier in January (if you can't find it either search for "Beautiful You" or email me, it takes a 7 1/2 x 12 and a few quick folds, and then add a dragonfly and belly band. 

The pouch is easy and makes for a great package for a gift.

Dragonfly Dreams is a bundle and with every $50 purchase you choose a free Sale-A-Bration item!
