Watercolor Dragonfly

I had a play today with my new stamping tool and the Unity kit of the month for January. To make this, I used the Stamp Perfect tool, and positioned my stamp like usual onto the lid. The paper is watercolor, so I inked the stamp with Stampin Write markers one color at a time, spritzed with water then stamped. Since your paper and stamp stay in position, you just keep inking, spritzing, and stamping until you have enough colors that you like. The tool was a big help again!

I took the paper out, and sponged Peacock Feathers Distress ink all around the edge, and added droplets of water, and dabbed it off. Gave it a nice background.The body of the dragonfly was watercolored with a brush, since it's an open image. I then dried the whole panel with my heat tool.

I placed the panel back in the tool, and chose a sentiment from the stamp kit. I inked this twice, since it didn't show up well the first time. I used the Black Olive ink from Your Next Stamp. Again, I'm happy with this new tool!

Thanks so much for visiting!
