IVE ALWAYS LOVED DRAGONFLIES...AND I CAN SIT ON THE FRONT PORCH FOREVER, JUST WATCHING THEM DART AROUND MY POND AND THEN LANDING ON THE LOTUS FLOWERS...
And for this reason, I chose the dragonfly as my "bug" in the "Dont bug me" challenge over at fantabulouscricut.blogspot.com.
For this card I used the following cartridges and measurements. Art Nouveau-water lily (pg 27), cut at 3 1/2 inches and dragonfly (pg 54), cut at 1 1/2 inches. Plantin SchoolBook-mixed letters, cut at 3/4 inches.
I decided to cut all of my images in white cardstock and color them using my Copic markers...I really wanted to give it the feel of being painted with water colors...Flower and sentiment-RV32 and RV34...greenery and dragonfly wings-G24 and G28...dragonfly body-E35, E37, YG20 and YG23.
I also altered the dragonfly (slightly), used vellum for his wings, Liquid Pearls (buttercup) for his eyes and put him on a pop dot to place him above the flower. Oh, and I put pop dots between the flower layers to have the flower open.
Thanks you for stopping by and having a look. Kathie
