Watercolour Dragonflies

Dear Crafters,

Today I share another sneak peek of the Dragonfly Dreams Bundle, but this time using the emboss resist technique.

I love how simple but effective this technique is!

Begin by stamping the images in Versamark ink, then add clear embossing powder and heat set.

Using the AquaPainter and ink, brush on the colour blending the two together in the centre. I’ve used Calypso Coral and Marina Mist.

To get those dots, I dropped tiny amounts of water from the AquaPainter, let it sit for a minute or two, then dabbed off with some paper towel. This lifts the colour already added.

I also added a vellum dragonfly and some pearls to the body.

What do you think of this card?
