Dragonfly Garden

This card I created a watercolour back ground using a smooching technique and an acrylic block and stamped flowers from the Dragonfly Garden Stamps.

Using Fluid 100 Water Colour Paper by Stampin’ Up! and two stamp pads – Tahitian Tide & Parakeet Party.

TIPS: The flower and sentiment was stamped with Memento Black Ink. Memento is a water based ink so I had to make sure that the watercolour back ground was very dry before stamping. If you were to do the watercolouring after the stamping the black would bleed. You should use Stazon whenever you are doing watercolour on top of an image.

I used the same technique a couple of weeks back on ‘Live with Michele’ You can watch the video HERE on YouTube. In this video I used 3 colours and a smaller block..With this card I used ‘E’ size block
