Inside the Lines with Copper Wing Dragonfly


I just love this new pack of black and white paper perfect for colouring!  Colouring in is just so therapeutic!   I had fun colouring with the new Watercolour Pencils and an Aqua Painter but anything would work: watercolours, inks, markers, acrylics ...  What could be better than that?  It's FREE with a $90 purchase!!!  Contact me for more information about Sale-A-Bration.

I coloured an entire sheet.  On one half I left the background white and on the other half, I coloured the background blue.

At the end of this post I've included photos of the watercolour pencils blended with Clear Wink of Stella and the Blender Pen





I also experimented with blending the watercolour pencils with a Blender Pen and with a Clear Wink of Stella.  The Blender Pen worked like magic.  It moved the colour around so smoothly and easily.  The Wink of Stella didn't work out so well for me but I think it would have been better if I'd filled the area with watercolour pencil rather than trying to blend it out.

The bee is part of the printing on this beautiful paper, the dragonfly has been cut out and added.

This is the first card I made with my freshly coloured paper.  I added a dragon fly with copper embossed vellum wings.This paper goes perfectly with the Dragonfly Dreams Bundle!

The coloured card front is applied to the white base card with dimensionals for added interest.

I propped the wings up on little pieces of  Dimensionals for added pop.

Graphic illustration of just how easy it is to use the Stampin' Up! Watercolour Pencils!

The photo above gives an idea of how simple it is to colour in this paper - no special knowledge or technique is required to get a nice effect.  I coloured in very roughly with the watercolour pencils and the Aqua Painter smoothed it all out!

On Wednesday (28 December) I'll be sharing the card I made with the area with the blue background.
