Watercolor Dragonfly Dreams

The inspiration for the colors in my card come from the challenge over at Sunday Stamps.

My card starts off with Pink Pirouette as a base.  I layered some watercolor paper over some Basic Gray cardstock.

I stamped the falling dots from the Dragonfly Dreams stamp set at the top and bottom of the watercolor paper in Flirty Flamingo ink.  I then took an Aqua Painter and squeezed it to get the water to pool at the end of the tip.  I dotted the water all over the falling dots that were stamped until they were wet.  I dried the paper with a heat tool, which caused some of the ink to run, giving it a really cool look.

My guess is that if you were to make a bunch of these cards, each one would have a unique look.

I cut out the dragonflies from the coordinating thinlits in Smoky Slate cardstock and after adhering them to the watercolor paper added three pearls on each one.  Lastly, I stamped the sentiment in Flirty Flamingo and cut the end in a banner.

Enjoy!
