I Wish it was the Summer!

All this snow is really getting me down!  We had a horrid blizzard, a few inches from another storm and now another storm is dropping about a foot on us.  I know I shouldn’t complain – all this water is good for the grass and flowers, but it’s so cold!

So I reached into my stamp set and brought out an old set that J begged me to get for her – Nature’s Nest.  She HAD to have it because of the turtle in it.  I didn’t use the turtle, but found this lovely dragonfly.

So first I clear heat embossed the dragonfly so I could watercolor with Wisteria Wonder and Island Indigo.  I love the combination of these two colors.  I used some Sweet Shop DSP so I could highlight the Island Indigo.  I think it came out great!  I wonderful card for MD’s friend whose team won their Basketball game!  Such a great card!

Have a Magical Day!

    I squeeze the ink pad and use an aquapainter to carry it to the stamp. For this on I actually clear embossed the dragonfly first and then water colored.

    Tina do you just use the ink from the pad to water color…do you add water? Very Spring like feel to it. Nice.

A bit of this. A bit of that.
