This is for the Mix-Ability Challenge to make a Masterboard Triptych card. MaryiLynn even provided a video.
I started with watercolor paper. I don't know why I chose the stamps I chose. I just play , no planning! LOL Just grabbed Fifth Avenue Floral because it was fresh in my mind. Melody, (Lacyquilter) had used it on a card, and it reminded me that I had it and had never used it that I remember! :) So got that out for the flowers and stamped in Pink Passion. Then remembered with water color s/b using stazon, so grabbed the teal blue and stamped the dragonfly with that. Then decided to use my color bursts instead of watercolor like MaryiLynn used in her video. I had gotten them before Christmas and wanted to try them. They were the Caribbean colors. Sprinkled the powder and spritzed with water. I let that dry, then used SU! Watercolor pencils to go over the dragonfly heads and the one flower. Then let the whole thing dry and put under a heavy book to flatten after drying. Then I cut it into panels and added the gold cord and dragonfly charms. I think both of those get lost in all the color. I went ahead and made two cards, as I had both these bases already on my desk.
Thanks for looking.

I think this turned out beautifully Sharon. I saw those dragon flies and wonderful flowers immediately so they are not lost in the color at all. Your touch of gold cord and the dragonfly brad really finish this wonderful mixed media card of perfectly! Hugs! ~Karen.
