Happy 5th Birthday to Crafting with Dragonflies Challenge Blog

I was invited to participate in the Crafting with Dragonflies 5th Birthday Challenge Blog Celebration.  Check out this wonderful card challenge and get in on the birthday fun.

I was given these beautiful flowers and adorable yorkie image to work with.  Two of my favorite things.


This image is from Digistamps 4 Joy.  I printed it in gray (not on purpose) on watercolor card stock.  I decided to just go with it.  I added color to the center of the flowers using my Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers.  Instead of using water, I used my clear glitter pen from Nuvo to pull the color the out.  The edges of the flowers got a little blurred in the process, but I think with watercolor that is okay.  I put down some of the zig color on my glass mat and added water so that I could create some splatter.  I used Nuvo drops for the center of the flowers.  Sentiment was stamped with Lawn Fawn ink.  Everything was outlined in the light gray Zig marker.  Card front was matted in purple.


Now this adorable image was a joy to play with.  It comes from The Paper Shelter and is already colored and ready to go.  I brought the image into my Silhouette Studio software and printed it on my Anna Griffin Kodak printer.  I was getting a little frustrated with the printer because everything was printed like it was in a fog.  Turns out I wasn't using the right setting when I was sending the images to the printer.  It's amazing how nicely it prints when you do it right.  LOL . So I traced this little cutie and printed it.  Then I cut it out with my Silhouette Cameo 3 (love it!).  I actually printed it twice.  I fussy cut the butterfly, the paws and the tongue to add some dimension.  The pattern paper is from Bo Bunny and I used both sides.  I cut out the heart so the solid color would show through.  Card front was matted in coordinating solid card stock.

Thanks for stopping by the blog today.  I hope you visit the Crafting with Dragonflies blog and celebrate 5 years of card challenges with them.  And you could win some fun prizes, too.  Have a great day and enjoy the journey and some chocolate.
