Dragonfly Garden and Soft Pastels

What a weekend.  I helped with a rummage sale on Friday.  It was cold, windy and not the turnout we had hoped.  Saturday, we set up again and the wind was even worse.  We were afraid of it taking the tent.  Winds and tents so freak me out!  So, after setting the sale up, we turned around and closed it back up.  I had advertised on Facebook Marketplace - Rain or Shine.  That was correct.  We would have been open if it was just that.  It was the wind that scared us into closing.  

I've had these Soft Pastels for quite some time and never used them.  I'm the only one who does that right?

To start out, I tried a super easy card.  I chose three colors to work with.  Bermuda Bay, Granny Apple Green and Daffodil Delight.  I colored my Basic White paper with the three pastels.

With the largest water painter, just color over the pastels to blend them together.  This is what my paper looked like after I blended the colors together.  Make sure you let it dry before you stamp the dragonflies.

The simplicity of the black dragonflies against the color was my intention.  They almost look like dragonfly silhouettes.

The sentiment is from the Sensational Swirls stamp set.  Simple and sweet.  Just like the card.
