Teapot Tuesday 97

Our guest hostess Bonnie (aka lovelightand peace) brings us this lovely teapot and a story about dragonflies.

We are to show Darla and Dingle Berry Dragonfly pretty things.  Well I just so happened to be working on some birthday cards for June birthdays and I thought these would fit in nicely.  (Of course I did not realize that butterflies would eat dragonflies, so let's assume these butterflies are moths!)

I used the Black Magic with a Twist Technique and the Watercolor Trio stamp set.  SU's watercolor pencils work spectacularly with this technique.

For this next card I found a dragonfly stamp I had bought from a clearance bin somewhere sometime ago and stamped it in Stazon onto Vellum cs.  I added some white gel pen to the body and used my Gold Shimmer paint to illuminate the wings. 

The colors really pop off the black paper and I don't know if you can tell that by the pictures - it is hard to photograph black cardstock and get the depth of color.

Okay, now which card for which birthday?   Hmmmm. 


  1. It looks to me as if you've captured the vibrant colours and strong contrast perfectly - makes me think of old lacquered furniture. And the vellum dragonfly - that's an inspired idea. I've got various butterfly/bee stickers with vellum wings, but I'd never have thought of stamping on it. It gives the perfect ephemeral look.

  2. Well, I'm not a June birthday, but I'd LOVE one in November ;) Gorgeous Lorraine - you'd make Karen so very proud!!!

  3. Wonderful teapot and such a beautiful card. I always love to see your teapot interpretations.


It's always so nice to hear from visitors. Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment.
