Dragonfly Dreams & Upcoming Classes

Dragonfly Dreams has been one of the most popular bundles in the Occasions Catalog. And when you see the lovely cards it can make you’ll know why.

This card uses a wonderful watercolor wash background created with our reinkers and Aqua Painter. The simplicity of this card is just wonderful I think.And I fell in love with this background as soon as I saw it – teals and water colored tones are some of my favorite colors so I was thrill when Cara shared with me how she made this background on her swap.  If you would like to see how to create this background too I’ve made a quick video for you.

Moon Lake meets Adventure Bound

I enjoy water coloring and the Moon Lake stamp set is perfect for this technique.


I used a piece of the Adventure Bound Designer Series Paper Stack to guide me as to which colors I chose for this card. I really like this little paper stack since it has a selection of great papers that can be used for all kinds of things, especially masculine cards.

Although there are all kinds of water coloring methods this time I chose to use my Aqua Painters to achieve this soft look. I’ve also used our Natural White card stock instead of our water color paper since I liked it’s earthiness. Can you see the subtle flecking in the card stock? And as long as you use a lighter hand with the water using our card stock is doable, you just have to be more careful not to add too much water to prevent pilling.

So what do you think? Does it give you a feel of being near the water?
