Hey Everyone!!  This is the card I created for my very first Facebook Live!!  Although I only had a few who tuned in AND I was a tad nervous, I am pleased with the way it turned out!!  In fact, I actually had fun doing it!!  SO I plan on going LIVE every Wednesday evening at 7pm CST.  Make sure to mark your calendars for next Wednesday, March 15th to see the project I have planned.

This FB Live coincided with my sketch challenge that I hold over on my FB Page Jen's Scrappy Pages every 2nd and 4th Wednesday of the month.  I used the Paper & Ink Sketch Challenge #16 this week.  This was actually a super simple sketch and I just LOVE the way it turned out!!  I did change up my dimensions, which are noted under the card that I created to go along with it.  After creating my sketch card, I decided to create 2 more using the same papers and technique, which I have included the dimensions for under each card.

I created this card using the Dragonfly Dreams stamp set and Detailed Dragonfly thinlits. For the dragonfly, I cut it out using Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer paper and colored it using an Aqua Painter with Watermelon Wonder and So Saffron. The center of the dragonfly was colored using a Basic Black Stampin' Write marker. Background was colored using the Daffodil Delight Watercolor pencil, then stamped using the background stamp in the Dragonfly Dreams stamp set. I sponged the ink where I wanted it, then stamped off for a second generation look to soften the dots.
