Dragonfly Birthday

At my Open House last Saturday we started with this card (above). It's simply emboss resist using sponges and different greens and blues meanwhile masking with a few different sizes of circles to create a sort of ripple affect in the water.  Below we stepped up the design by adding Garden Green ferns (from Butterfly Basics---YES!!!) and sponging a bit of pink in the water. I like both. While the cards below are more lush, the top one is soft and sweet. Everyone did a WONDERFUL job of their cards and they each turned out differently, which is what I love about this style of card.
Don't forget to outline the shadowed edges of the wings with a darker shade of turquoise to give your dragonfly a bit of depth.
