The Splitcoaststampers Dirty Dozen/Dirty Dozen Alumni have been working really hard to put together 3 days of fantastic challenges. My friend and “roomie” on the Dirty Dozen, Jami (sgtstamper) asked me to make a sample for her challenge on Saturday, July 25.
These are a couple of views of my card, Blue Dragonfly. You’ll need to visit the DTGD09 challenge for details on the challenge, and you’ll need to be a Fan Club member to view it and join in. These great challenges are just one of the wonderful perks you receive for joining the Fan Club.
The dragonflies were stamped and colored w/ Twinkling H2o’s and cut out. I did a second one that I used to attach on top w/ foam tape for a little dimension. The layer they’re on was cut w/ a Spellbinders Labels 3 set. I left the die on top after cutting/embossing and sponged on some lt blue ink. The layer under it was a leftover piece from another project that I painted some H2O’s over the top.
The first blue layer was bugged w/ the Swiss Dots folder. The sentiment was cut out and attached to another piece of the painted bg c/s which was cut w/ the smallest Nestie ovals, just a little off center.
Rhinestones were added to the branch, ribbon across the bottom and the dragonfly charm was attached w/ a rhinestone brad.
Hope to see you in the DTGD challenges! Thanks for stopping by!

It’s been a long road with many twists, turns and delays but I’m finally here. I’ve been out of town for a while so I don’t have any new cards to post yet. So, I’ll just start off with a tutorial on Watercolor Resist that I put together before I left.
Since I don’t have a new card to post just yet, I thought I’d start with the card in my header. The background of this card was made using the same watercolor technique as the Ombre Watercolor Resist technique, minus the resist part. Write the Other Way was made a few years ago and it was published in The Stamper’s Sampler in an issue that called for quotes or sayings. The stamps used were from Blockheads, Stampers Anonymous and Penny Black; the quote was computer generated onto vellum.
