Mermaid Dragonfly

Paper Dragonfly Creative Challenges #5

The Paper Dragonfly Createve Challenge this month is Mermaids + the dragonfly twist. I created my water scene by first using Hero Arts Rays of Color stencil and a light blue ink. I wanted more of an undersea background so I die cut Hero Arts Beach Frame Fancy die from cardstock and blended this over the Rays of Color in a navy ink. The top portion which I surprisingly remembered to mask off at the start of my card became my sky by making my clouds with an Inky Antics cloud stencil and left over ink on a blending brush. The little mermaid is Sizzix’s Catch a Wave stamp and die set and dragonflies are Gina K Designs’ Take Flight stamp set.

It’s always fun to play with Paper Dragonfly challenges.

Thanks for stopping in for a peek. I appreciate you and your time. Take care and be safe.

  1. Cute card. You did a great job on the water. That cute mermaid looks like she’s trying hard to catch a dragonfly.

  3. This is another winner Gayle. Your background for the water is cleverly done and I also like the subtle sky too. The mermaid is adorable and I agree with Judy that she looks as if she’s trying to catch a dragonfly.

    1. Thanks, Johanna, it was another interest dragonfly challenge using a mermaid and dragonfly together. Hugs.
