How to make this gorgeous summer Dragonfly Card with shades of blue and green.

This image shows a handmade card with black die-cut dragonflies suspended over a water coloured background in shades of blue and green.

Summer is here!
Well, here in England Spring has been totally bypassed and we now have SUMMER! It was an extremely long winter, and despite having heavy snow here in Suffolk only three weeks ago, we had 28 degrees yesterday! The hottest April day since 1949.

With that in mind, I thought we should have a summer card. I used the Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits Dies for the dragonflies - this project makes me think of the gorgeous river nearby and the dragonflies and damselflies that dart to and fro...

Today's project is a super-quick one, you just need to allow time for drying, which isn't a problem in this weather.

How to make this card
1. Create a wash on Watercolour Paper using an Aqua Painter and the colours you desire - I used Tempting Turquoise (retiring), Old Olive and Garden Green. Give the ink pads a little squeeze and then pick up colour in the lid.
2. Leave to dry. When it is dry, stamp your sentiment. I used Thoughtful Banners. The adhere to some Very Vanilla Cardstock.
3. Die cut your dragonflies in Basic Black Cardstock using the Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits Dies and the Big Shot.
4. Adhere using our Mini Stampin' Dimensionals


A super quick and easy, but extremely lovely, easy dragonfly project.

Back tomorrow with more ideas, thanks for stopping by,
