Last Week’s Card & Cuppa – Dragonfly Dreams

Last week’s Card & Cuppa was all about the brand new Watercolour Pencils from the Spring/Summer Catalogue.

This is the beautiful card that the attendees made:

Card & Cuppa Dragonfly Dreams Stampin' Up!

To make the dragonfly stand out, we created a muted background using colours from the Neutrals family.  These were stamped off a number of times.

As we were using Photopolymer stamps, I was able to pre-cut the dragonfly shapes using the coordinating Thinlits.  The Stamp Set and Thinlits are available as a Bundle with 10% off.

A sentiment stamped onto a banner, a strip of Natural Trim Ribbon and some Pearls just finished off the project.  Using a Blender Pen after colouring is a great way to smooth out any imperfections too.

Everyone had free rein on which Watercolour Pencils they coloured the dragonfly with, the only stipulation was that Old Olive had to be used on the dragonfly somewhere, this was to pull the project together.  As you can imagine, no two projects were the same.

Card & Cuppa runs each week at a number of venues.  Have a look at my Classes page for more information and remember to book your place by 18:00 the day before.

Happy crafting
