Dragonfly Cards for Whimsical Wednesdays

These are the last two dragonfly cards I’ll get finished before the deadline to send them in. If you haven’t read my previous posts about the card drive, please read HERE.

I actually managed to get two done with this week’s sketch. TIP: The ribbon below is white twill coloured with a Copic marker. I didn’t like how much white showed through the twill texture so I sprayed it with alcohol in a Mini Mister. This dissolved the colour and allowed it to soak through the thickness of the ribbon.

Just two other quick notes. I added pearls to both cards. They are harder to see in the photos than IRL but I think they add a nice touch. The background for the butterfly is airbrushed with B12 and a handcut cloud template. I am really having fun with the airbrush system. I can’t believe I had it for well over a month without playing with it!

I hope you will all play this week’s sketch! Isn’t it a fun one, courtesy Nikki? The DareDevils would love for you to visit their blogs to see their work! Everyone is playing except Valerie and Kim. Please be sure link up your card so you can be eligible for this month’s prize from our Sponsor, The Character Cafe. Make sure you leave a DIRECT link to your post at Mr Linky on the Whimsical Wednesdays blog, not the link to your main blog page. I am very sad to say that Sandra is resigning after this week. We will really miss you, Sandra! I’ve really enjoyed your fabulous, creative cards! Best wishes with your new job, DTs and your family!

Enjoy, Rebecca
