Hello there! I have a card today using some images from the Hero Arts Winged Friends Digital Kit available at the a2z Scrapbooking Etsy store. Once you learn a few tricks working with the digital images you can do all sorts of things. One of the best things is being able to make the images any size you want to fit your project.
I wanted to have some fun with the dragonflies. There are also two butterflies in this digital kit. I opened Word and inserted each of the two dragonflies. I selected layout and changed the size to 4X6 instead of letter size. That way I could work in a space close to my card size. I sized each butterfly, gave them a bit of a tilt/turn and then copied and pasted them 3 to a row. I also copied one of each dragonfly to the next 4X6 page and made those ones bigger. I printed all of them out using an inkjet printer.
I colored all of the butterflies with Copic markers in purple, blue green, and a yellow brown color for the body. I did not have any ink smearing while coloring. I went over the wings with a sparkle pen.
I heat embossed the sentiment with silver embossing powder on a strip of white paper. Underneath the sentiment strip is a piece of fun foam. I hand cut one of the larger dragonflies and added that and the gems to the sentiment strip. I had the sentiment looking different at first but it didn’t look right to me so I was lucky to get that part off without ruining anything and changed it to how it looks now.
